Comprehension is one of the 5 pillars of The Science of Reading. Teachers will receive support in the structures found in a work of non-fiction AND strategies that can be explicitly used to help readers gain access to deeper meaning inside those texts. This one day workshop will clarify how skills and strategies are different and address Texas standards specific to NON-FICTION. Skills we will explore will include:

  • Main Idea: Determining key details and synthesizing those details to identify one clear central or main idea

  • Sifting and Lifting Key Ideas

  • Text Features: Not just ‘what’ they are but how they support our understanding.


Teachers will NOT ONLY leave with a clear understanding of these topics but construct a PLAYBOOK with clear anchor charts to support strategy instruction. The playbook can be supportive in large group, small group and reading conferences.




This workshop qualifies for Title 1 funding.

Make checks payable to Koesel Consulting.

Cancellation Policy:  Substitutions are allowed at any time; however, refunds are not given.

All workshops begin at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at 3:30 p.m.  

Plan to arrive between 8:10 and 8:20 to sign in, pick up materials, and find seating.  If you are expecting a large group from your school, it is a good idea to come early if sitting together is important to you. Dress comfortably and you may want to add layers...buildings can be really cold.
