A reading comprehension SIM strategy—Fundamentals of Paraphrasing & Summarizing—will begin on January 10, 2017. This strategy •helps students (at grades 3 and above reading levels) to read a paragraph or longer passage, identify the main idea and key details, and then rephrase the content in their own words. The strategy improves student comprehension and helps students write summaries of passages read. Students begin by paraphrasing words, move on to paragraphs, and finally passages of text.

We will also be incorporating some writing tasks into this strategy.

Coaches Corner is a resource for MN SIM Network Professional Developers who are currently doing online strategies-based coaching or PDers who are interested in doing this in the future. The site includes materials from the 8/6/15 coaches' training, a Coaches Corner Forum, and plenty of space to store other resources as we develop this model.
