Some things keep changing in education, this site is mostly about the new things. But, some things do not change. For instance, reading comprehension skills are as important today as ever. I was thinking aobut this when I read about the process of learning to read and in particular, about mastering reading comprehension skills. And I quote:
“My child reads but she doesn’t seem to understand what she reads. What can I do?”
Time4Learning teaches reading comprehension as part of an overall language arts program for enrichment, remediation, summer use, or homeschooling. The key reading comprehension skills, interacting with the text versus just decoding it, is taught by Time4Learning as part of an integrated language arts program delivered on line including phonics, vocabulary, fluency, writing, grammar, and critical thinking.
