Background Knowledge
This module addresses the important area of helping students develop the knowledge base they need to be successful readers. We will explain the importance of background knowledge, its effects on reading comprehension, and ways to facilitate its development for students with reading disabilities. We will focus on the actual construction of the knowledge base by attending to three areas: strengthening students' knowledge of the world; learning word meaning; and learning ideas and relationships among ideas.
