    Reading Strategies Reading Strategies Presentation Transcript

    • Reading Comprehension Strategies What good readers do to understand what they read
    • Pre-Reading Strategies
      • Setting yourself up for success
    • 1. Read with a Purpose
      • This is basic, but critical - ask, “why am I reading this?”
        • If you have a purpose, you will improve your focus!
    • For assigned readings:
      • Is it part of a class lesson?
        • Ask yourself, how does this reading connect with what we are studying?
      • Is there a key question the reading will answer?
        • If the reading has a question you must answer, read the question(s) first - they will guide you to focus on the key points.
      • Don’t be afraid to ask a teacher to explain the goal of the reading!
    • 2. Focus on the Main Ideas
      • Turn headings into questions.
        • Headings introduce sections; by previewing headings, you can identify the main ideas each section will focus on.
      • Turn your questions into main ideas.
        • By reviewing the key questions you created, you can develop a ‘preview’ of the material.
    • During Reading Strategies Reading with a focus
    • Note when you…
      • 1. Ask clarifying questions
        • These are Qs that you ask while reading, to understand it better.
        • If you read actively, Qs will “pop up” based on what you’re reading - who, what, where, when, and why are standard ones.
        • Perhaps something doesn’t make sense…
      • 2. React to something you read
        • Often, as we read, details interest or surprise us, or evoke an emotion.
        • Noting these points helps keep us focused on the material.
      • 3. Make connections
        • If there is a key question / main purpose for the reading, note details that connect with it.
        • Watch for information that answers any clarifying questions you asked.
        • Connect the information to what you already know, and personal experiences.
      • 4. Form extension questions and ideas
        • As you read, note ideas that strike you, thoughts that are inspired by what you read.
        • Perhaps the reading connects with an interest you have, or raises curiosity about a topic, or something you’d like to try…
    • Remember:
      • Good readers do these things naturally - it just takes practice.
      • You won’t use all the strategies all the time. The key is to THINK about what you’re reading WHILE you read it.
