The purpose of this page is to provide strategies and activities to enhance the development of reading comprehension. As a participant in endless conferences, seminars, and university courses, I have always come away with lots of new ideas and generated some of my own. The need to internalize all of the information led me to develop extensive notes in handout format to share with others. I call it The Literarium: A Teacher's Bag of Tricks (a Compendium of Strategies and Activities to Enhance Literacy.) It's one of those "never ending stories." I'll always be a teacher researcher, looking for the better fix! Enjoy!
Now that I have retired from my job as a Language Arts Specialist, I have the time to go through things that I developed and used in the classroom as a regular education teacher. What a goldmine! I had forgotten that I worked on this as a personal literacy project while working on my masters degree. I'm really excited about finding the documents that support this page! If you see something that is not underlined and would like to move it to the front of the line for completion, let me know by sending me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll get to it right away.
Some of these files are apparently too large to open as Word documents so I'm in the process of converting them to pdf files, while still trying to add new stuff!! If you can't open something, e-mail me and I'll convert it immediately (same day). Some things are not linked yet, and so they are not underlined. They are here as a reminder to myself to finish them ASAP.
