Transcript of Reading Comprehension Strategies

By: Mini Zhang Reading Comprehension
Strategies Connecting Connections are things you can relate to while reading a book. You can relate to your own experiences, another text, or to the world. Those are called text to self, text to text, and text to world. Connections help the reader to understand the text better, since they have a background knowledge of the subject in there connection. Questioning *Connecting can also be connecting through media not just through texts. Predicting and Inferring Predicting and inferring are alike but different as well. Predicting is thinking about what is going to happen in the future of the story. While inferring is thinking about the story at its current time or looking back at the text. Inferring can be more difficult than predicting since in predicting you can always check your answer in the future of the book, while for inferring you can't get the answer straight from the text. Questioning helps deepen the understanding of the text. Asking questions before during and after helps the read understand the text and clarify its meaning. There are 3 different types of questions that could be asked; literal, inferential, and evaluative. Literal or "on the line" questions can be answered from quotes stated directly in the text. Inferential or "between the line" questions can be answered through your prior knowledge and clues in the text. Finally, evaluative or "beyond the line" questions. These are questions about the quality of the text, perspective or logic. The answers to these questions make you go beyond the text and keeps you engaged in the story. Synthesizing Synthesizing is like putting all the pieces together. It includes ordering information gathered and retelling it in your own words. It is also recreating the information you know in a new understanding of the text. A synthesis includes; connections you made while reading the story, questions you asked and predictions or inferences you made. A synthesis explains what the point of the text was and showing all the information that the reader had to show while reading. *Putting all the pieces together. Visualizing Visualizing is creating images in the readers head while reading a text. It helps create a "three-dimensional" version of the text in the readers mind. Visualizing helps keep the reader engaged in the text and keeps a memorable image in the readers mind. Visualizing can also keep the reader actively thinking about the things that they read.
