Evidence-Based Reading Comprehension Course (Grades 4-5)
The University of Pittsburgh’s Institute for Learning (IFL) developed this innovative, online program to help teachers improve student reading comprehension.
- Teachers participate in an eight-week online workshop, collaborating with their peers in the development of lesson plans to employ the evidence-based practices of Accountable Talk® and Questioning the Author that deepen student understanding of text.
- Teachers receive follow on one-on-one coaching from highly qualified IFL-trained coaches who observe teachers implementing those practices in the classroom.
- Teachers attend the workshop and the follow on coaching sessions online using the technologies that are already in their hands.
- Teachers in Texas schools have achieved improved student test scores as a result of Content-Focused Coaching®.
