EDA 5001 - Active Reading vs Passive Reading: Teaching Students to Become Better Readers

(3) In this course, you will explore the latest brain research to learn the elements of the brain used in reading and the most effective ways to engage your students in reading and learning from print and digital text. You’ll develop strategies for engaging students’ brains in active processing during letter and word decoding, fluency development, vocabulary acquisition and elaboration, and comprehension of text at different levels of meaning. In addition, you’ll examine the similarities and differences between reading in print and electronic formats, especially in relationship to active reading. Finally, you’ll learn how to find appropriate reading materials for your students, and how to inspire passive and struggling readers to build active reading strategies.
