Module Goals:

Stronger readers know how to identify their confusion, ask questions, and seek clarification. Weaker readers, however, often shrug their shoulders at their lack of understanding because they have not learned to identify the source of confusion and then employ strategies to remedy the situation. Therefore, to be successful readers, students need to learn to think about their comprehension while they are reading, to pause during reading and engage in self-talk, and to use this internal dialogue to increase their understanding of the text.

Our learning goals for this module are:

  • Faculty will learn about metacognition as an effective reading strategy that develops awareness and control.
  • Faculty will learn application strategies for self-monitoring and self-correction for reading comprehension difficulties.
