    Discover how the Brain learns to read and gain knowledge of the skills of what good readers do when reading fiction and nonfiction texts. Participants will learn the seven core reading strategies used most often by good readers and will ultimately be able to practice and internalize these core strategies when reading for school, work, or pleasure. Participants in the Reading course will also learn how to actively participate and collaborate within peer groups as they come to understand what good readers do. Participants will learn to inspire through reading, and how this will be connected to the CCSS.
