English teachers in foreign language settings all over the world recognize the importance of providing their students with materials that facilitate growth. Ensuring growth in reading depends on
1) Providing students with reading opportunities at the right level.
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. Using sample students, the webinar will then offer multiple student examples that clearly illustrate the correlation between comprehension and growth in reading.
