Improving Reading Comprehension

Course 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 Course: This course asks learners to implement lessons with their class or with a small group of students (options for learners without access to students are available).

For assignments and evaluation details, see the full Syllabus.

Similar to an in-person undergraduate or graduate-level course, the number of hours identified for this course reflects the expected amount of time learners will spend online, but does not reflect the total time spent completing coursework and assignments offline.
