Event description

Description

The AIU will be presenting LETRS Module 6 on 2/15/18. LETRS, Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling, is professional development for educators responsible for improving K-12 instruction in reading, writing, and spelling.

Module 6: Digging for Meaning: Teaching Text Comprehension

This module discusses and illustrates the many conditions, skills, processes, and abilities that influence reading comprehension outcomes. Teachers are helped to anticipate the cognitive and linguistic challenges students face as they read narrative and expository text. Participants examine the text, reader, task, and context variables that have and impact on comprehension. They also analyze the challenges of written language processing at the word, phrase, sentence, paragraph, and discourse levels; consider how inferences are made; and learn how to foster metacognitive and strategic skills that good readers employ.
