  3. 3.  Students are asked to examine the title of the book or text  Then, the students raise their hand and call out whatever comes to mind as they read the title  The teacher lists on the board all of the information that the students are saying  Later the information will be used to further recall  This strategy activates prior knowledge Brainstorming

  5. 5.  List-group-label is a form of semantic mapping  First, you select a main topic in the reading  Then, have students call out any words they think relate to the topic  Then, have the class group the list into subcategories  Lastly, have the students title the subcategories List-group-label
  6. 6. Visual aids  Using visual aids is a great way to activate students’ prior knowledge  For example, a teacher should show a picture of a tornado before reading a science textbook chapter on tornadoes  The picture of a tornado will activate the students’ schemata on that subject.
  7. 7. KWL  In this strategy, students decide:  What do I know?  What do I want to learn?  What did I learn?  Students should draw three columns on a sheet of paper  Then, students will write the three questions above the three columns  Students should then write down their personal answers to these questions  Later, the class should have a group discussion sharing what each student wrote.

  9. 9. Think-Aloud  During this strategy, teacher’s essentially verbalize aloud while reading a section orally  While reading the section, the teacher will answer questions like, “Do I understand what I just read?” and “What were the most important points in this reading?”  It teaches students how to monitor their understanding  After the teacher models what to do; the students can start thinking-aloud, but the teacher will offer feedback
  10. 10. Post-Its  Encourage students to keep a stack of post-its with them while reading the book  Every time they read something that interests them they should put a post-it.  For example, they should put a post-it on the page that has a powerful quote.  They should also put a post-it on a page where they are confused or where they just want to make some notes.
  11. 11.  After introducing the text, organize the students into pairs based on partners that will be beneficial to others.  One student will read orally for five minutes, while the other student follows along and corrects any mistakes when necessary.  Have the pair switch roles and the other student will read the same passage for the next 5 minutes while d the other student provides corrective feedback.  Partner reading monitors comprehension and is a great cooperative learning strategy Partner Reading
  12. 12. Concept Map  Concept maps help students understand and comprehend new text  Ask students to identify the major ideas or concepts in the text  Then have the students organize the ideas into categories  Have the students use lines to connect the ideas to the categories or to another idea.
  13. 13. SQ3R  Have each student:  S-urvey the assigned reading by skimming  Create Q-uestions to answer as you read  R-ead the text and then answer the questions you formulated  R-ecite the information by summarizing what you read without looking at the text  R-eview what you read by looking over your questions and answers and finding out what the text means

  15. 15. Exit Slips  Exit slips help students reflect on what they have read  Exit slips can also be used to help teachers reflect on their lesson and see what needs to be altered  Ask students to write down their responses to the following questions on a flashcard  What was one thing you learned today from the reading?  How could today’s lesson be used in the real world?
  16. 16. Paragraph Shrinking  Students monitor their comprehension and give feedback to others during paragraph shrinking  For this strategy, students are in groups of two and one partner reads aloud for five minutes and then has to summarize the main points after they finish  Students have to state the main idea in 10 words or less  Then, the other partner will have to do the same thing
  17. 17. Shared Reading  Provides support for struggling readers  After reading the text, try and relate it to something personal or another experience  Then have the students retell the chapter in their own words
  18. 18. Create Your Own Test  This strategy really requires students to comprehend what they just read  Have the students create their own test based on the text they just read  This will also help them prepare for the actual test
  19. 19. Picture This!  This strategy is great because it requires students to relate the text to something artistic  Ask the students to bring in some piece of art that relates to something they read in the text  Then have all the students sit together and compare, describe, and discuss the different pieces of art they brought in.
