Welcome to the Reading Room!
For the 2018-2019 school year, the monthly literacy foci will center around metacognitive strategies. Metacognitive strategies are strategies that encourage readers to think about their thinking. These metacognitive strategies are overarching reading strategies; they can be taught in conjunction with or alongside the specific reading and writing skills the literacy instructor is teaching.
