About this Program
The ultimate goal of Reading to Learn: Comprehension Instruction is for educators in all areas to learn ways to help students comprehend what they read.

Research Based
This program concentrates on the skills of reading comprehension for students at all grade levels, including comprehension of secondary content area textbooks.  The program is suitable for ALL educators K-12 who have the responsibility of helping students learn to read and understand written text better.  This program is NOT designed only for reading specialists or Language Arts teachers.  The program gives teachers across the curriculum critical, research-based information on increasing reading comprehension levels.
