Developing Effective Reading Strategies

This course will cover reading strategies that teachers can use with their students to increase comprehension of the texts students read. Reading strategies such as asking questions before, during, and after reading, making connections, synthesizing texts, and creating mental images while reading can be used to help struggling readers learn the skills they need to become more mindful and successful readers.

These reading strategies are helpful to every student, and especially to English Language Learners (ELL) and students with learning disabilities. Using these strategies can help transform passive readers into active readers and struggling readers into effective readers.
