Webinar Series with Anita Archer –
February 5, 19 & March 5, 2014 –
Dr. Archer will present research-validated procedures for scaffolding reading comprehension of narrative, argumentative, and informative text that can be used BEFORE reading a passage (e.g., teaching the meaning of unknown vocabulary, teaching or activating critical background knowledge, and previewing passages), DURING passage reading (e.g., asking text-dependent questions, scaffolding higher order questions, having students generate questions, teaching comprehension strategies) and AFTER reading a passage (e.g., leading students in a discussion of the passage, summarizing information using graphic organizers, introducing strategies for responding to written questions, having students write a summary or comparison of the passage.) Dr. Archer will model each of the practices and illustrate the application of these procedures to example passages.
