To be a successful reader, your students’ brains are required to orchestrate a variety of cognitive domains for each part of the reading process. In this workshop you will have the opportunity to look into what cognitive domains are required for reading comprehension, how to identify if students have an asset or challenge in these domains, and specific strategies to move your struggling readers to reading success
