The purpose of this blog is to share interesting ideas I have found in American professional publications dealing with the teaching of English at all levels, elementary, secondary and college.
Topic: Comprehension Strategies (K-12)
Title: “The Road Not Yet Taken: A Transactional Strategies Approach to Comprehension Instruction.” Rachel Brown. The Reading Teacher (April 2008), 538-547. A publication of the International Reading Association.
Question: What are some examples of reading strategies?
Answer/Quote: “…asking questions, predicting, making connections to prior knowledge, summarizing, visualizing and using ‘fix-it’ strategies for figuring out unknown words and for clarifying confusions.” p. 538.
