The reading seminar curriculum focuses on vocabulary & basic reading skills as applied to nonfiction. Where traditional language arts classes focus on the analysis of literary elements & comprehension of fictional novels & short stories, reading seminar classes focus on understanding & interpreting nonfiction materials such as textbook passages, magazine and newspaper articles, as well as other nonfiction pieces.
The goal is to improve reading comprehension by reviewing & practicing individual reading skills & expanding students’ vocabulary.
