Homeschool Reading Comprehension Cohort

Building Reading Comprehension

Reading comprehension helps a child understand a written passage of text. This class is critical because it will teach the scholars how to understand the difference between reading and comprehending. In this class, they will learn how to annotate the text and answer questions based on what they've read in the passage.

I approach reading by teaching, modeling, and then setting the expectations. My experience as a reading specialist and training through Orton-Gillingham has equipped me with the knowledge and strategies to teach scholars to become competent readers.

This is a four week class.

There is only room for 7 scholars.

The purpose of reading comprehension is for scholars to understand what they've read in the text.

During this 45 min. session, the scholars will learn different reading strategies to assist them in becoming proficient in the area of comprehension.

Students will be required to participate in classroom discussions and classroom activities.
The scholars will complete a pretest on Read Theory. This will give me an idea of their grade and Lexile Level.
