Reading comprehension is the ability of a reader to extract and construct meaning by engaging actively with written language to derive the intended purpose of the author. It is important to teach active reading strategies, through explicit instruction, throughout the elementary and middle school years to develop independent readers. The aim of this workshop is to give young readers the tools they need to understand increasingly complex text throughout their academic career and beyond.
