Metacognitive Reading Strategies Day 1 - Austin, TX


More Information and to Register

Building students’ reading metacognition increases their ability to transfer learning to new contexts and it increases students’ ability to learn independently. Hattie’s research shows it also holds the potential to increase student achievement in all content. In the two 1 day workshops, we will explore the definition of metacognition: students take active control of their thinking processes. The we will apply it to specific reading instructional strategies.

Day 1 November 13, 2018:

Teachers will learn how to teach and to integrate the SIMR Visual Imagery strategy and the close reading strategies for fiction from Beers and Probst to build student metacognition and reading comprehension.

Audience: Teachers grades 4-12
