Content Literacy: Teaching Comprehension Webinar

Content matters. Thinking matters. We teach comprehension strategies in the literacy block and also across the curriculum in science and social studies so kids can learn, understand, and remember it. Above all, comprehension is a knowledge-building activity. The more content knowledge we have, the more likely we are to grow it.

During it, you will:

  • Consider research-based thinking strategies for comprehending and deepening engagement with content.
  • Learn how students use comprehension strategies flexibly to read, write, talk, draw, view, and create in science and social studies.
  • Learn ways to engage students in rich talk and discussion about content.

Content literacy is all about how kids acquire knowledge, as well as how they make sense of it and use it every day. When we teach content literacy, we build a foundation of thinking strategies that will benefit students throughout their lives.
