Reading Comprehension

Reading Comprehension (RC) is 1-day training for fourth, fifth, and sixth grade teachers to learn techniques to strengthen students’ reading comprehension and retention skills.

Reading Comprehension, inspired by Tanny McGregor’s Comprehension Connections, encourages the mastering of comprehension strategies before applying them to text. It emphasizes the value and power of utilizing a student’s background knowledge to form connections that allow a lasting understanding of what is read.

Learning reading comprehension strategies is made fun and memorable through music, art, drama, objects, and activities. The six strategies addressed during this course are: making connections, predicting, asking questions, clarifying, visualizing, and summarizing. Fluency tips and a copy of Six-Way Paragraphs are included with the course.
