Improving Reading Comprehension

Course Description:

Understand the many factors affecting students' comprehension, and how to avoid the "fourth-grade reading slump". Implement active strategies for developing students' love of reading while building their comprehension of different types of texts. Bring narrative, expository, and multi-genre books to life for all students through student-collaboration projects, text maps, reading guides and Internet-based projects.

This course was formerly titled "Teaching Narrative and Expository Comprehension"

Note: This is a facilitated course. Learners submit coursework and participate in asynchronous discussions throughout the course term, and receive graded feedback.

Classroom Link-Access to students recommended. PBS Classroom Link courses ask learners to implement lessons with their class or with a small group of students (options for learners without access to students are available).
