Reading for Meaning
Recorded July 12, 2012
With the higher expectations of the Common Core State Standards, students need to do more than answer comprehension questions; they need to read for meaning, to restate important ideas, draw conclusions, and defend them with evidence.
In this webinar, explore Reading for Meaning, a research-based strategy that motivates students to read critically, and builds the reasoning and inference skills found in the best readers.
