Transcript of Reading Comprehension

What is reading comprehension?
Reading comprehension is the
act of understanding what you are
reading (K12 Reader, 2014).

We all read for this purpose to construct meaning from text, to understand and comprehend the written message
(Winch, 2013).
Learning to read

Reading relies on a student’s ability to apply graphophonic (code-breaking) grammatical (the sequence of the words) and semantics to the meaning brought to text (Winch, 2014).

Here is an example of a
think aloud conducted
'before reading'.
Other considerations
No 'one strategy' can be applied to all students.

Continued practice and scaffolding are essential to ensure strategies are used correctly and can be applied to each setting (Hill, 2013).

Questioning is modeling, developing strategies and assessing reading comprehension.

Strategies should be implemented across many curriculum domains.
the more we learn,

Bloom's Taxonomy
The five levels is used to drive differentiate and derive questioning for comprehension (Konza, 2011).
