Based on Linda Hoyt's Revisit, Reflect, Retell, Updated Edition, Time-Tested Strategies for Teaching Reading Comprehension introduces teachers anew to the most reliable and teacher-friendly resource for helping students experience deeper levels of engagement with and understanding of text.
Participants will gain a thorough grounding in the research supporting comprehension instruction and learn how to quickly match the right instructional strategy to their teaching objectives using the updated edition's important new correlation tables that link Hoyt's strategies to the seven comprehension strands and Robert Marzano's Classifications of Thinking. They will observe key teaching moves and hear the language of effective instruction as they watch footage from the all-new companion DVD that captures Hoyt implementing new strategies from the updated edition with students. Participants will become familiar with the accompanying CD ROM of full-color learning tools from the text that make it easy to customize and print handouts that correspond to the book's strategies.
