Class Experience

I am excited to help my students reach their reading potential!
Students will be improving their reading comprehension by applying proven strategies to class middle grade short stories.  For eight weeks, I will teach students practical skills that will enhance their understanding immediately by connecting them to meaningful texts. 
 Each class will have a warm-up activity, a presentation of practical skills, and a reading application.  
Reading Strategies: questioning, analyzing text structure, visualization, summaries.
