Objective and Outcomes: *

Through this course, participants will read and discuss the book Strategies That Work: Third Edition by Stephanie Harvey and Anne Goudvis. Participants will be studying the comprehension strategies: monitoring comprehension (making connections), questioning, visualizing, inferring, determining importance, summarizing and synthesizing. They will be studying how the comprehension strategies relate to the ND Common Core State Standards in grades Kindergarten-5th grade. Additionally, they will be learning how to weave these comprehension strategies into reading instruction and integrating them across the curriculum. Finally, participants will be exploring the idea of “thinking-intensive reading” and what it could look like in the classroom.
