I am offering this class because as a teacher, I have noticed that while some students are fantastic readers, they can significantly struggle to recall what they have read and answer questions about the material. I have led reading and comprehension interventions with students that focus on helping them learn how to think while reading a text and look back into the text for answers when answering comprehension questions. 
 4 files available upon enrollment
During each class, the students will need to have: - The class print out (they may also bring a sheet of lined paper in case they need additional space to write their answers.) - A pencil
I will create and provide the handouts for the class. They will be uploaded to the classroom the day before class for the students to print at home and bring to class. Our stories will come from story weaver (https://storyweaver.org.in/)
