This session explains the importance of integrating reading comprehension with the development of higher thinking skills. Enabling students to read analytically is one of the main goals of the new approach to teaching reading in Spanish. Participants learn and discuss the three main reading skills students must develop: (1) recognize the meaning of a word or phrase within the context of the other ideas presented in the text; (2) identify and understand basic reading forms (beginning, development, resolution; reading genres, types of reading selections, etc.) and (3) identify the relationships between the ideas presented in a reading selection in order to analyze and synthesize the information.
*Offered in Spanish
Maximum of 35 participants. Each additional participant $50.00
