Teaching Tip #42

Teacherscribe’s Teaching Tip #42
Reading is more than “decoding.”
Here are some quick strategies that can help struggling readers with comprehending our texts –
·      visualize (make mental pictures or sensory images)
·      connext (to connect to one’s own experience, to events in the world, to other feelings)
·      question (to actively wonder, to surface uncertainties, to interrogate the text).
·      Infer (to predict, hypothesize, interpret, draw conclusions).
·      Evaluate (to determine importance, make judgments)
·      Analyze (to notice text structures, author’s craft, vocab, purpose, theme, point of view)
·      Recall (to retell, summarize, remember information)
·      Self-monitor (to recognize and act on confusion, uncertainty, attention problems)
