Translate the current research on reading into classroom practices that teachers can deploy tomorrow. We know that reading is an active process that is impacted by the text, task, and sociocultural context in which the reading occurs. These crucial components include systematic development of word recognition and language comprehension skills. Importantly, newer work reveals the bridging processes that make these possible.
In this webinar, participants will:
– Explore foundational skills that foster automaticity and fluency
– Engage with comprehension and vocabulary practices that promote comprehension
– Understand the contributions of motivation and engagement in reading.
– Examine newer research about the role of theory of mind, cognitive flexibility, and executive function in reading
