Description: Reading comprehension has often been seen as that easy thing to do in school where the student simply reads a text and answers the questions. However, reading comprehension is not that simple for students wishing to join a Gifted and Talented Extension program! The reading comprehension questions mainly focus on inference and the ability to interpret the meaning behind the words. When was the last time your child sat and read poetry and completely understood all of the metaphors? In order to be fully competent in reading comprehension it is vital that the reader can understand everything in the text; the literal, implied and inferred meanings. This is not only fantastic for preparation for the GATE exam but it will also help with general reading comprehension skills in school. These workshops are most effective when both days are attended.
