The purpose of this page is to provide
strategies and activities to enhance the development of reading comprehension.
As a participant in endless conferences, seminars, and university courses, I
have always come away with lots of new ideas and generated some of my own. The
need to internalize all of the information led me to develop extensive notes in
handout format to share with others. I call it The Literarium: A Teacher's Bag
of Tricks (a Compendium of Strategies and Activities to Enhance Literacy.) It's
one of those "never ending stories." I'll always be a teacher researcher,
looking for the better fix! Enjoy!
Now that I have retired from my job as a
Language Arts Specialist, I have the time to go through things that I developed
and used in the classroom as a regular education teacher. What a goldmine! I had
forgotten that I worked on this as a personal literacy project while working on
my masters degree. I'm really excited about finding the documents that support
this page! If you see something that is not underlined and would like to move
it to the front of the line for completion, let me know by sending me an e-mail
at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll get to it right away.
Some of these files are apparently too large
to open as Word documents so I'm in the process of converting them to pdf files,
while still trying to add new stuff!! If you can't open something, e-mail me and
I'll convert it immediately (same day). Some things are not linked yet, and so
they are not underlined. They are here as a reminder to myself to finish them
