2) Checking to see students understand what they read.

In this webinar, Dr. Carol Johnson will demonstrate for educators why facilitating comprehension when reading is critical for growth, contributing not only to reading but overall language development.

The webinar will begin with a brief research review on the importance of comprehension when reading, followed by a demonstration of the effect of vocabulary on comprehensibility.
