Reading Comprehension Across the Disciplines
Little Flower is pleased to offer reading comprehension classes enrichment classes through the Success Center. While the classes are entirely optional, it is our hope that students will express an interest in deepening their ability to understand the precise connection between meaning and text. Using poetry initially, the class will emphasize linking particular words and phrases to the particular ideas and feelings we experience when engaged in reading based assignments across the curriculum. By practicing close reading engagement with text, students will have a chance to see the connection between all academic work and careful analysis of the text at hand. These skills are foundational in SAT and AP examination and serve as well to strengthen college readiness.
