Although fluency is important for reading success, it is not sufficient. Students must also actively work to make meaning out of the words and texts they read. Vocabulary is a major contributor to reading comprehension and is particularly relevant for English Language Learners and our special education students.  In this webinar, Dr. Timothy Rasinski will share some of his favorite approaches for helping students engage in texts meaningfully and productively.
