Research shows that strong readers use a battery of strategies before, during, and after reading to help themselves make sense of texts. They preview and predict in advance. They read actively, making note of key ideas. They monitor their comprehension along the way and reflect on their thinking after they’re done.
In this two-day institute, Harvey Silver and Margaret Searle will show educators in all grades and content areas how to improve reading comprehension by focusing on the “secret ingredient” that makes reading for understanding possible: executive function. Through executive function, we can help all students become self-regulated readers who can use comprehension strategies to make meaning of texts.
Most important, this session will be packed with ready-to-use tools that deepen reading comprehension by developing executive function and proficient-reading skills. These tools work across content areas and grade levels and with all kinds of texts—from textbooks to novels to research articles.
