Improving Reading Comprehension

Course Section Description:

Knowledge acquisition is directly related to students’ ability to read and understand what they’re reading, whether it’s in an ELA novel or a science textbook. In this course for 4-8 grade educators, you will learn specific strategies for supporting students’ comprehension of narrative and expository texts across the curriculum. Walk away with:

• A better understanding of the factors that affect reading comprehension, and the instructional implications

• A knowledge of how to teach active comprehension strategies characteristic of strong readers

• A variety of collaborative learning strategies you can use to support comprehension

• Techniques for effectively assessing student comprehension in your classroom


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).
