    • How to Repair a Break Down inReading Comprehension
    • •Make a connection between the text and your life, your knowledge of the world, or another text.
    • •Make a prediction. Think about what the author is going to discuss in the next section or chapter before you continue.
    • • Stop and think about what you have already read. Do not hurry through your reading. Make sure you break and reflect on what you have just read before continuing.
    • • Ask yourself a question related to the reading and try to answer it. If you can’t then go back and reread for the answer.
    • • Reflect in writing on what you have read. When you have completed a section or chapter, stop and write about what you have just read.
    • • Visualize. Make the words into pictures in your head. This type of engagement with the text, allows you to “see” the material and understand the material in a new way.
    • • Use print conventions as clues for meaning- how do things like punctuation, CAPITALIZATION, italicized and bolded words or larger text give meaning to the reading?
    • • Retell what you’ve read. Restate the main ideas of the text you just read to a friend, family member, or maybe just aloud to yourself.
    • •Reread. Do not be afraid or too lazy to take the time to reread a text if you are having difficulty with comprehension.
    • • Notice patterns in text structure. A technique to help with comprehension is to notice repetitions in the words, sentence and paragraph structures, and sections of the reading that can help you as you continue to read.
    • •Adjust your reading rate: slow down or speed up.
