Reading comprehension skills separates the "passive" unskilled reader from the "active" readers. Skilled readers don't just read, they interact with the text. Inner Monologue Benefits of Good Reading Comprehension Reading comprehension skills increase the pleasure and effectiveness of reading.

Strong reading comprehension skills help in all the other subjects and in the personal and professional lives. High stake testing control advancement through elementary, middle, and high school and determine entrance to college. Congress decides to mandate good reading skills Congress charged the National Reading Panel (NRP) with researching the effectiveness of various approaches to

teaching children to read. They wanted to find out what methods work best for reading improvement Tactics that work We are using the following strategies that work for reading comprehension: .Mind Mapping . Direct instruction . Use of decodable texts . Embedded skills instruction . Integrated reading and writing

. Access to quality literature . Whole-class instruction . Teacher modeling Speed Reading Develop "traditional" old fashioned speed reading habits first Once thoroughly ingrained it will allow the student to input and scan information quickly Reading becomes habitualized at mostly an unconscious level. In this version of speed reading, rather than the

incoming flow of information being the focus of attention, active cognitive processes that organize information dominate. See references to Blink by Malcolm Gladwell Mind Mapping Basically going through information in order to find the major concepts A student can create a visual Mind Map or a Linear Mind Map Really helps for studying for tests in general

HOMEWORK LISTENS even when he doesnt seem like it Chunking Reading Basically highlighting chunked portions of the reading in order to read faster Students practice reading the highlighted areas faster and faster until they reach the desired speed and comprehension levels
