Metacognitive Reading Strategies Day 2 - Austin, TX (Self Questioning & Paraphrasing Strategies)

For more information and to register

Building students’ reading metacognition increases their ability to transfer learning to new contexts and it increases students’ ability to learning independently. Hattie’s research shows it also holds the potential to increase student achievement in all content. In the two 1 day workshops, we will explore the definition of metacognition: students take active control of their thinking processes. The we will apply it to specific reading instructional strategies.

Teachers will learn how to use the SIM Self Questioning and Paraphrasing strategy and other research based instructional strategies to build student metacognition and reading comprehension.

Audience: Teachers grades 4-12
