Panelists use world analysis and comprehension to illustrate research-based practices and specific instructional techniques. Topics include the definition of reading, methods of assessing reading, and practical ideas for teaching reading. Panelists discuss how components of reading can provide a framework for assessing students’ reading abilities and how assessment results can be utilized for designing a program of instruction to improve students’ reading skills.
