How Do We Improve Reading Comprehension In Hybrid Or Fully Virtual Learning Environments?

Reading Comprehension is a fundamental pillar of all education. It is the key to all aspects of learning, thinking and development. Achievement gaps in Reading Comprehension snowball into serious learning issues, development issues, and behavior issues. These learning deficits can lead to life-long developmental issues in students, as well as create classroom chaos and dysfunction for teachers.
 
This is all true under normal circumstances… But what about right now?

Edweek has produced some pretty shocking studies about the catastrophic affects of the pandemic on both teachers and students. Achievement gaps are widening exponentially, student engagement is at an all time low, and without any testing, we can’t accurately gauge just how bad the situation is.
