Course Description

Research has shown that students’ ability to comprehend content area text is critical to their success on standardized tests, in future education, and beyond.  Readers must comprehend, extrapolate, and remember main ideas to integrate them with prior knowledge. Informational text also requires readers to discover an organizational pattern in order to comprehend relationships between ideas.  In this course, participants will learn about the basic patterns of successful readers of content area text every time they face a new book or passage.  Through the final project, participants will demonstrate and receive coaching and feedback regarding their understanding of using content literacy strategies based on students' need to teach Informational Text.
