  • This is where we live or die - we either have students who can understand the content and make meaning or they can’t - when they can’t understanding, they lose attention - and we as teachers lose purpose.\n
  • For some students, YES!!! - Remember that it is different to understand and comprehend a novel than a content text. Novels are about plot and theme. A content text is about different strategies - rereading, interpreting events (history), transforming charts and graphs into meaning, etc... So comprehension means different things to different content.\n
  • Student-Centered Comprehension: teaching students how to use specific comprehension strategies independently. Students are learning comprehension strategies and content at the same time - this requires a lot of emphasis on reading and thinking.\n\nContent-Centered Comprehension: Teachers use materials (graphic organizers, reading guides) to make the reading more comprehensible. The main objective is understanding new information.\n
  • There are costs to taking the time to teaching comprehension....it doesn’t happen quickly or easily. But when it is taught well, teachers see results.\nConnect to the image on slide - putting the student behind the wheel.\n
