November 30, 2018: Anita Archer- Explicit Teaching in Comprehension, Writing and Vocabulary
8:30 to 2:30

Title:  Keys to Reading Comprehension:  Explicit Instruction on Passage Word Reading, Background Knowledge, Vocabulary, Inferences, and Strategies


Description: Do your students have difficulty comprehending a chapter in their science or social studies book or a short story?  Dr. Archer will present evidence-based instructional strategies to scaffold student comprehension of informative and narrative text before text reading (teaching the pronunciation of difficult words, introducing the meaning of academic vocabulary, teaching background knowledge, previewing the text), during passage reading (asking comprehension questions, teaching students to generate questions, using strategies including verbal rehearsal, note-taking, and story grammar) and after passage reading (answering written comprehension questions, writing summaries of passage content). 


Dr. Archer will present information on each of the strategies, demonstrate their use, and lead participants in a variety of activities to illustrate the application and modification of these strategies for use with struggling readers.
