“I was pleased with all of the new resources and ideas that
I will be able to bring into the classroom for teaching reading. Thanks!”

Reading should be a meaningful activity that is focused on  comprehension and that results in understanding. When students struggle with a specific subject matter the underlying reason is nearly also identified as under developed reading skills. The strategies in this course are imperative for all educators to help their students become proficient readers.

SECTION A: Reading Across the Curriculum, helps teachers understand how to assess reading skills in the classroom and plan instruction accordingly. When every day teaching is carefully designed around this type of data it means that all students can learn and grow.

In SECTION B: Tackling Tough Text, equips educators to empower their students with confidence when handling tough text. Strategies to break down, engage and interact with the text are all explained in detail. Reading is a complex cognitive process that develops cognitive skills.

SECTION C: The Cognitive Skills section explores and explains difficulties associated with learning to reading while introducing strategies for dealing with these issues and reducing the gap.

    I really enjoyed my first experience with an online course. I enjoyed working at my own pace and completing assignments according to my schedule. There sources were fairly easy to access. Would have benefited from a better understanding of class expectations in terms of grading system.

    I chose this course because I wanted to learn how to help my students improve their reading skills across different content areas as I work with them on various subjects within our science, social studies, and ELA curriculums. I didn't realize how closely this course would relate to my position as a speech-language pathologist.

  36. Alison V. says:

    This course has truly awakened my thoughts in regard to reading across the curriculum. I feel reinvigorated in some of my approaches to reading, specifically in regard to pre and post reading work and assessments. So many of the articles that I read throughout this course provided me with much needed insight and concrete facts about reading that I can use in discussion with parents, colleagues and my children's teachers. Just when I thought I might not have the time for another course, I am quickly reminded of how much there is to learn and how much I love learning about my craft!

    This course has given me ideas on how to help struggling readers in my classroom and ideas on activities that I can use to have students read more difficult texts. I am a little nervous about the implementation of Common Core standards as I am not a reading teacher. This course has made me more comfortable with some of the changes that are being made to classroom teaching. I think the selection in the course that helped me the most was the pre-reading and reading activities that had concrete ways to read a text in the classroom and how to link a text to prior knowledge. One of the key things I learned from this course is making sure children are surrounded with enough variety of texts to understand the content throughout all ages and grades

    As someone renewing my license, not currently teaching or having access to more clock hours in a work setting, more courses to fulfill clock hours would be great.

    I very much appreciate the opportunity to earn recertification points through this online program. I've learned a lot, and the courses were expertly written. I also enjoyed the option to ""listen to the text"" being read. It means more sensory needs for learners. Ida

    This course has strengthened my belief in the importance of reading to learning, especially in the area of social studies. I think this course also refreshed my understanding of the importance of context and prior knowledge to understanding. I am going to try and focus on these key concepts this year.

  47. Theresa G. says:

    I found several activities to be extremely helpful. It not only allows me to see which concepts the student thinks are central, I can also gain insight into which students are having difficulty with comprehending, vocabulary etc. This course has provided a solid tool to allow children the ability to self monitor and control their reading comprehension. It definitely filled a gap in taking the class lesson techniques and making them accessible to the student on an independent level. The goal of reading should be to create a life-long love of reading. By helping to keep students focused and organized, these strategies and the checklist, remove a level of frustration. I have really gained useful strategies that I am anxious to try out this year!

  48. Victoria C. says:
    Five Stars

    For me, this course has really opened my eyes to the importance of pre-reading discussions. This tool will help focus student attention and ease anxiety about answering questions. The reading checklist encourages students to become involved in the reading process. It helps to make reading less intimidating and more manageable.

    I enjoyed the course content and plan on using some things I have learned in future lessons. The readings and activities were both challenging and helpful.
