Reading Strategies

Reading is so much more than recognizing words on a page. To remember and understand what we read, we need to use strategies. These are steps we can follow to help us break down ideas, ask questions, get information, or simply enjoy a good story! The fact is, reading strategies take practice and this class is a great starting point. You can also use the skills you learn in this class to help with the reading lessons you are completing with the LearningHUB.
