T18 - Teaching Students With Poor Comprehension

Oct 25, 2018 2:15pm ‐ Oct 25, 2018 3:15pm

Credits: None available.

Standard: $20.00


Participants learn how to help students who exhibit poor comprehension despite having adequate decoding skills, vocabulary knowledge, and sentence comprehension. The presentation focuses on teaching these students to make local inferences as they read in an effort to integrate adjacent sentences and make global inferences to understand the text as a whole.

Learning Objective:

  • COMPREHENSION: Examine the critical role knowledge plays in reading comprehension for students with reading difficulties.
