Ensuring Reader Comprehension

in Content Areas and ELA, Grades 6-12

Empowering Teachers with Proven Strategies to Support Student Learning

No longer can teachers assign informational reading and assume students have the skills to understand it, let alone remember it.

Many of our students also struggle with writing in a clear, organized manner that conveys their ideas.


Julie Monetta, SIEC Director of Educator Support, is here to guide and support ALL teachers by demonstrating and sharing her expertise in these areas. Find out how to assist your students with these vital skills at the same time that you're teaching content.


Participants can expect the following takeaways and helps for the classroom:

  • Teaching students how to take notes and process important information
  • Author's purpose and main text structure, to recognize and prioritize important information
  • Guiding students in how to organize and plan their thinking for effective writing
  • Signal and transition words that assist with reading comprehension and writing
  • Using writing exemplars to support student writing
  • Comprehending and making notes of speeches, news segments, and other spoken input
