Hi! I'm working with a 17 year old Thai student one- on-one, in a 1 hour session. His reading level is closer to 5th or 6th grade. Does anyone have any impactful, time-savvy techniques for working on reading comprehension and text analysis?
I have a short reading I have prepared with some vocabulary activities for prep, but what other techniques can be used to break down a text, in small bites?
