Thinking About Executive Skills and Reading Comprehension
9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Sign-in and breakfast begins at 8:30 a.m.
Target Audience: General and special educators, reading specialists and lead teachers, administrators, reading leaders, and instructional coaches.
Skilled readers use high-level thinking skills as they make a plan for understanding text, resist distractions, manage information, and make sense of what they read. Without these executive skills, students can struggle to comprehend what they read. Fortunately for struggling readers, executive skills can be taught.
This session will focus on:
- Information about executive skills; what they are, and what they look like in readers.
- Knowledge of instructional techniques and intervention strategies that improve studentsí executive skills and reading comprehension.
- Easy to implement classroom strategies; an understanding of why executive skills are essential to successful reading comprehension.
Workshop participants will receive a copy of Dr. Cartwright's book, Executive Skills and Reading Comprehension, A Guide for Educators (2015).
