Being able to comprehend complex texts from a variety of content areas is an essential skill in the information age. Teaching students how to adapt their approach to a text based on its content area is a key part of comprehension. Pearson’s iLit is a comprehensive literacy solution designed to produce two or more years of reading growth in a single year. Based on a proven instructional model that has produced results for students in districts across the country for more than a decade, iLit has been carefully crafted to meet the rigors of the Common Core State Standards and to prepare students for success. In this webinar, Dr. Sharon Vaughn, executive director of the Meadows Center for Preventing Educational Risk at The University of Texas at Austin, will discuss strategies for teaching students vocabulary and comprehension within content area texts, and how iLit provides an effective way of implementing these strategies.
