T32 - Thinking Through the SAT: Helping Students Bring Advanced Comprehension and Problem Solving Strategies to the Reading Test.

Nov 9, 2017 3:15pm ‐ Nov 9, 2017 4:15pm

Standard: $20.00


This presentation demonstrates instructional practices designed to help dyslexic students apply advanced comprehension strategies to the reading test on the SAT. Although these passages challenge their ability to understand difficult subject-matter text, by learning to identify central ideas and support, make inferences, analyze arguments, and interpret information presented in graphs and charts, students who struggle with reading and language skills can increase their test-taking confidence and score.

Learning Outcome:

  • TEACHING/INSTRUCTION/INTERVENTION: Examine effective practices for teaching specific language comprehension strategies for the students who are struggling with reading.
