Reading 8


Students will immediately transfer knowledge and skills from Reading 7 to this course.  In past reading classes they have applied, and they will continue to apply, reading skills and strategies to every text—traditional, electronic, and visual.  Comprehension and constructing meaning are at the core of every content area and career.  In addition, the ability to read critically will empower students in multitudinous ways.  The arsenal of personal reading strategies built in Reading 8 will not only help to sustain students in high school and college, but will also contribute to their being independent readers for life.  Just next year students will begin earning credits and will have class rank.  Their reading skills will impact their success in these areas.
