The following comprehension strategies are addressed: main idea skills, use of a topic web graphic organizer, two-column notes, summarizing, and question generation at multiple levels of thinking.  Vocabulary strategies presented are: previewing vocabulary before reading, activities to make connections between known and unknown words, selecting key academic vocabulary to teach in-depth, use of context and word parts, and word consciousness. The content of this PD is based on instructional practices developed for students who struggle with literacy in SEI classrooms. Participants also learn how the training is highly aligned to Common Core literacy standards and topics covered in the Massachusetts SEI/RETELL course.
