Building students’ background knowledge and vocabulary is a critical piece of the teaching of reading. What students know about the topic of a text influences how well they comprehend that text. Come learn how to integrate background knowledge building into your reading instruction using free, research-based resources from ReadWorks that can be adapted to whatever teaching model you are using this fall: remote, hybrid, or in-person.
