LEAD PD - Read to Know: Reading Comprehension: Nonfiction

Reading is essential to learning. This course will teach you how to support your students literacy growth in reading comprehension of nonfiction, or informational, materials. You will learn how the brain takes in information from print, how your choice of assigned reading needs to reflect your knowledge of your students' reading levels, and how to get your students to approach a reading event prepared to comprehend it independently. We will discuss how typical reading assignments are conducted in content classes (i.e., science, history, mathematics, technical classes) in middle and high schools, explain and give examples of how to get our reading needs met, and provide you with a host of strategies and methods for changing the way you use print for learning in ways that equal high school graduates who are prepared for the rigors of reading in college and in the workplace.
