Are You Developing the Skills and Habits Students Need for Comprehension, Critical Thinking, and Success with Rigorous Standards?

The Common Core State Standards, as well as independent state standards, significantly raise the bar for all students regarding the demands of literacy and critical thinking. Teachers are expected to cover more complex material, more in depth, and with a focus on deep understanding and critical thinking. Students must be able to cite evidence from text to form opinions and arguments, both in speaking and writing. With an emphasis on informational text and academic vocabulary, most standards demand an interdisciplinary approach to literacy instruction.

The Visualizing and Verbalizing® (V/V®) program develops the skills and habits students need to meet expectations in the strands of Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening, and Language. V/V offers a comprehensive approach in developing the capacities of the literate individual. It stimulates concept imagery as a basis for language comprehension, word knowledge, critical thinking, and expressive language (both oral and written). The program is used as a developmental or remedial strategy to teach students, pre-K through adult, how to comprehend.
