Transcript of 4 levels of comprehension

Understandings at the literal and interpretive levels are combined, reorganized and restructured at the applied level to express opinions, draw new insights and develop fresh ideas. Guiding students through the applied level shows them how to synthesize information, to read between the lines and to develop a deeper understanding of the concepts, principles and implications presented in the text..
In evaluative comprehension readers analyze and make judgments about what they read. At this level, readers use evidence from the text to reach conclusions and make generalizations about the text and its wider implications .
