Connect to Comprehension

Professional Development

Even though this is a scripted program, in-depth training can greatly enhance effectiveness of implementation.  The six-session interactive virtual training  for individuals and groups can be accessed through the Connect to Comprehension Center for Literacy Learning.

In this training, you will learn:

  • how the components of the program are aligned to research
  • how to conduct an individual diagnostic assessment to determine each student's strengths and weaknesses in phonics/decoding, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension
  • how to compile assessment information into a comprehensive Student Profile
  • how to assemble and use the three practice decks, a critical part of the program
  • how to provide effective instruction and practice in each component of the program, including Skill Focus, Making Connections, Vocabulary Extension, and Guided and Independent Writing Extensions
  • how to organize materials so that you can focus on teaching
  • how to plan for and implement effective lessons
Aligned to Research Organize Your Materials Plan and Implement
