F.A.S.T. Reading: Comprehension Workshop
Overcoming Stumbling Blocks to Reading for Understanding
For Grades 28 Teachers
Many students have great difficulty understanding what they read, and this can be a special challenge for students who have nonverbal learning differences. To become fluent, students must not only decode words automatically; they must also learn how to construct meaning. In this training you will gain specific instructional techniques for remediating the skill deficits that lead to poor comprehension.
When students develop a repertoire of approaches to texts, their reading comprehension soars, they become more successful in school, and they begin to read independently for pleasure.
