1 READING COMPREHENSION STRATEGY: CLICK AND CLUNK Amanda Baker Erika Harris Misty Haney Nehemiah Solomon

2  This strategy is like driving a car. When everything is going smoothly, the car is clicking (Pearson, p. 393). You’re getting to your destination.  When the car hits a pothole, gets stuck in the mud or comes to a big seed bump, then the car is in a clunking phase. Obstacles are hindering you. CLICK AND CLUNK (COMPARISON)

3  Click and Clunk is a useful way to motivate students to become involved in monitoring for meaning (Pearson, p. 393).  Clicks are portions of the text that are easy to understand.  Clunks are problem portions, which can be hard words or confusing sentences.  Students use metacognition to try to correct their own reading errors. WHAT IS CLICK AND CLUNK?

4  When student hits a clunk, they attempt to clarify.  Strategies for dealing with clunks might be listed on a chart in the classroom or on a bookmark.  If students are unable to resolve a clunk, they can place a sticky note next to the confusing element then get help later. STRATEGIES TO USE
