Comprehension begins with a literal understanding of what’s being read, but to grow as readers, students must then develop skills and strategies that allow them to become active and critical consumers of text.

In this NLI Webinar, speakers will share new perspectives on how to teach those skills and strategies and offer concrete ideas for classroom application.

Takeaways include

  • Examples of structured dialogue that assess deeper levels of comprehension

  • Ideas for building knowledge and empathy using authentic texts and diverse books

  • Activities that encourage learners to connect new knowledge to their lived experiences

  • Ways to layer instructional approaches for more meaningful engagement and greater gains

The "Comprehension Coach"

Teach whole-class comprehension skills with explicit instruction

Dr. Ingrid will kick off the Institute by highlighting the similarities between teaching reading and coaching an athletic team. Just as an athletic coach breaks down a new play, classroom teachers must provide explicit, whole-class comprehension instruction. Taking on the attitude of a comprehension “coach,” the teacher begins to equip students with a lifelong playbook of reading skills.
