    I really enjoy Katherine’s courses-especially because they get right to the point. She does a great job explaining what’s necessary for teachers to establish the building blocks of reading. In fact, I’ve tried to take as many of her courses as I can. I always enjoy them and I always feel like I can take something from them. I’m glad I have access to these courses.

    This course doesn’t offer any strategies for helping students to comprehend content. It just explains the underlying needs. It is intended for middle school and high school teachers – not primary.
