Improve Comprehension Speaker Slides


Reading comprehension is often tested, but rarely is it taught. Thus, readers with poor reading comprehension never have the opportunity to learn the skills they need to improve their comprehension. The Visualizing/ Verbalizing program, developed by Nanci Bell, uses visualizing and verbalizing exercises to stimulate concept imagery— to improve not only comprehension, but reasoning and expressive language skills as well.   Presenter: Dr. Jennifer Petrich, Recorded READ San Diego Conference, 2009
