Reading Nonfiction: What Matters Most

Join us as we look at how we help all readers, but especially our struggling readers, address nonfiction with greater understanding. You’ll leave with strategies that help you encourage students to think critically, read closely, and determine author’s purpose and bias.  

We’ll also turn our attention to vocabulary issues. We’ll look at strategies that not only help students learn words, but more importantly, determine which words they most need to learn.  

Finally, we know that comprehension improves when readers are engaged with the text they are reading. So, in this session we share several strategies designed to strengthen the students’ engagement with texts and with one another as they discuss their readings. These strategies encourage readers to be both more responsive and responsible as they read any text – nonfiction or fiction. 

NOTE: Please bring a couple of short texts that your students will be reading as we will make sure you have time to apply strategies we teach to texts your students will read.
