- About the Presenters
In this webinar, learn how to implement programs and services that will provide literacy support for early readers ages 5-9. An expert in the field of elementary education will speak about how our personal experiences and prior knowledge help us to understand what we are reading. We will discuss the many ways readers connect with texts. This can include relating the text to themselves, comparing similar texts or making connections between the text and the wider world around them. We’ll share ideas for programs, book recommendations, and reader’s advisory that will help connect with children and caregivers on the subject of literacy.
Participants will be able to:
- Understand the various ways that early readers begin to make connections between what they are reading and their observations and own life experiences.
- Share strategies for identifying how background knowledge contributes to comprehension with young readers and their caregivers.
- Plan programs that will illustrate strategies for reader response as it applies to critical thinking and comprehension.
