About the Session:

Reading Comprehension Success! - For Parents

Reading comprehension success on reading assessments consists of skills, which are required throughout each student’s learning. Questions on reading tests not only assess a student’s reading capability but also their reading skills. These skills are needed to read each reading passage successfully but more so, to be able to analyze each question and determine which skill is required to successfully answer each question.

There are many processes and practices a student can do at home to help them achieve their highest level of achievement on reading comprehension tests. This workshop will introduce and explain the 5 reading comprehension skills and provide tools and practices to use at home to support each child's rading path to success.

About the Presenter(s):
Brigitta Goerres

I have been involved in education for over 25 years. I have had the fortune of starting my career as a classroom teacher with the Elk Island Catholic School District immediately after graduating from the University of Alberta majoring in both English and Social Studies. I continued my career working with the Ministry of Education as an Exam Manager in the Assessment Department and from there worked for a decade as the Executive Director of Curriculum with an educational company developing study tools both print and digital for students, teachers, and parents. Today, I am able to combine my experience and return to classroom setting as an English and Social Studies teacher but to an audience of diversified learners with unique backgrounds and goals as well as I have founded a consulting business to collaborate and share ideas and methods to allow all learners the opportunity to reach their highest level of achievement and to inspire and motivate teachers.
