Dr. Coleman
available at the CEU SmartHub on 09/30/21

Strong reading comprehension skills are critical to achieving the status of “reading to learn,” which is a pivotal point in reading skill development noted in older elementary age students. The pathway to robust reading comprehension skills includes developing a sound foundation in spoken language skills, most notably listening comprehension, and accompanying higher order thinking skills, like inference generation and comprehension monitoring. Using evidence based methodology, this session will highlight underpinnings of reading comprehension as well as considerations for reading comprehension assessment and intervention.
