Salt Lake City (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a new strategy to increase student reading comprehension using the newly developed RATE method. The strategy, released as part of School Improvement Network’s weekly publication, "Strategy of the Week," shows a Tennessee teacher demonstrating the method and its impact on student reading comprehension.
"Helping students understand and critically analyze a text is essential to prepare them for future work in college or a career," said Chet Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. "Truly effective educators increase student reading comprehension through methods like these that engage students to help them make connections with the things they learn and do inside and outside of school."
The new video segment outlines the RATE method to increase student achievement by helping students read, annotate, think and encode a text.
