Comprehension Strategies in All Subject Areas

Professional Growth Opportunities

Students are faced with increasingly complex texts in every subject area. Research literature confirms the importance of explicitly teaching comprehension strategies to students to support their understanding. By explicitly teaching comprehension strategies in subject areas such as science and math, teachers can help students develop deeper understanding of these and other subject areas. This workshop will have participants experience a number of practical strategies that they can connect back to the subjects they teach.

Participants will:

  • Explore a repertoire of research-based strategies to support comprehension strategies in all subject areas.
  • Experience a number of practical comprehension strategies.
  • Plan for implementing comprehension strategies within their middle years and high school classrooms.
