Being a Reader
Being a Reader is a reimagined comprehensive research-based early reading curriculum that incorporates embedded social-emotional learning (SEL) into systematic, sequential foundational skills instruction and rigorous comprehension work.
Reading and Reading Comprehension
Reading comprehension is being able to accurately read text, decode it, and understand the meaning. Skilled readers don’t just read, they interact with the text. To help a beginning reader understand this concept, you might explain that interactive reading comprehension involves the internal discussion the reader has with himself/herself while reading. We teach students how to read effectively.
Testing Reading Comprehension
After reading a book, MT tutors are trained to have discussions with the students in order to encourage active reading, enforce reading comprehension foundations, and improve communication skills. (Example questions shown below)
