Keys to Literacy offers a half-day or one-day overview of comprehension instruction. This session includes a brief overview of the five components of reading and factors that can affect students' ability to read and write grade level material. It also reviews the research on effective comprehension and vocabulary instruction. Finally, an overview of The Key Comprehension Routine and The Key Vocabulary Routine is presented that shows classroom examples of how these models can be used. What often happens after an overview such as this is that teachers recognize the benefits of professional development in comprehension and vocabulary and express their desire to begin full Key Comprehension or Key Vocabulary training.
