This self-paced online course shares the research findings for how to support reading for depth and provides tips for how teachers can bring those practices into their classrooms. We explore what makes depth challenging for students, then find ways to improve instruction in order to tackle those challenges.
The course is divided into 9 modules covering the three keys to improve comprehension: activating thinking, supporting thinking, and revealing thinking.
- content knowledge
- building vocabulary
- formative assessment
Each module takes about 10 minutes to complete and can be taken in any sequence. Each module is followed by an "Action and Reflection" activity that puts the lesson into practice, as well as a multiple-choice quiz. A certificate is awarded upon successful completion of the course.
