Capstone Project Title
Many elementary students enter middle school disengaged with reading and lack literacy comprehension skills. All middle school teachers can make reading fun in their content classrooms to help students comprehend and engage with classroom content. This capstone project introduces a year-long, seven-session reading comprehension strategies professional development plan. This professional development plan motivates middle school teachers to use reading comprehension strategies to engage and help students understand their classroom content. This reading comprehension strategies professional development plan explains that each middle school teacher has their teaching style, and each student learns in their unique way. This capstone professional development plan impacts middle school teachers to adjust their content curriculum using three reading comprehension strategies to build engagement and comprehension for students in their classrooms. The capstone project conceptualizes the effect of using reading comprehension strategies in a middle school community.
