Working with Read Naturally Live


Webinar Video: Read Naturally Live—Beyond the basics: comprehension


Presented January 23, 2018 by Karen Hunter, Read Naturally Educational Consultant, and Ben Weisner, Read Naturally Senior Relationship Manager.

We want each student to read the stories in Read Naturally Live fluently. But reading accurately and at an appropriate rate is not enough. Comprehension is the essence of reading! Students must learn to interact with the text to construct meaning.

Comprehension and vocabulary are intentionally emphasized throughout Read Naturally Live, and students must read for meaning to meet requirements for passing each story. By understanding how to make adjustments for specific students, you can maximize your students’ progress in comprehension.
