    Reading and Comprehension

    holmesg

      According to the U.S. Department of Education, one student in four public school eighth-graders lacks basic grade-level reading skills.  They do not comprehend grade level materials. Webster's Dictionary, defines reading comprehension as the capacity to perceive and understand the meaning communicated by text.  Sometimes it can be difficult to find resources that are engaging and motivate students to explore the topic beyond what was studied during classroom hours.  What resources or activities are you using to improve student reading and comprehension level and facilitate them reading on grade level or beyond?
