The vision of this program is to aid students in developing their reading abilities by providing them with a set of comprehension strategies that can be independently and effectively used during reading. We believe that learning to read is a complex process of which making meaning is the primary purpose. Comprehension is the tool to read, process, and understand information. We believe that introducing, modeling, practicing, and applying comprehension strategies for authentic reading purposes will help develop readers who are independent, strategic, and automatically search for understanding as they read. All students can benefit from learning comprehension strategies. Our vision is to provide students with necessary techniques for identifying and understanding various texts in a motivating and applicable way.
