Reading Goals: Strategies for Comprehension. General goal for comprehension: Students will increase in the use of cognitive strategies to build knowledge from text. Evidence of strategy use will be based on frequency, appropriateness and effectiveness of the use of strategies, and the complexity of texts to which strategies are applied.How do you teach reading comprehension strategies?
Increase comprehension by teaching children how to remain focused on the material they're reading. Start with a brief, pre-reading session. Have your child read the title to a short story or article and anticipate what the story will be about. Tell him to read the story to see if his prediction was right.What to do about reading comprehension?
Monitor comprehension. Readers who monitor their own reading use strategies to help them when they don’t understand something. Teach your child how to “click and clunk.” Read together and ask her to hold up one finger when the reading is making sense (click) and two fingers when meaning breaks down (clunk).
