Description:Did you realize that reading is one of the most important skills you can teach? The skill of reading not only gives your students what they need to be successful learners, but it also makes them more self-confident and eager to learn their whole life long. It's truly at the core of the other language skills—listening, speaking, writing, and grammar. In this course, you'll learn how to show your students the value of reading to motivate them to become strong readers. Together, we'll explore the core skills of intensive reading. Then we'll examine extensive reading and how to integrate it into your curriculum. Next, we'll cover ways to bring vocabulary teaching into your reading classroom. You'll find out the difference between teaching comprehension and merely testing on it. They're not the same! We'll also look at ways to help your students develop a fluent reading rate and use strategies for reading successfully. And we'll round out our time together by discussing how to plan effective lessons, design a strong reading curriculum, select appropriate reading materials, and assess students to encourage their growth. If you would like to pass a passion for reading on to your students, then this is the course for you! Requirements: Internet access, e-mail, the Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox Web browser, and the Adobe Flash and PDF plug-ins (two free and simple downloads you obtain at http://www.adobe.com/downloads by clicking Get Adobe Flash Player and Get Adobe Reader).
