3 What are those voices in your head saying as you read a book?
4 Why is it important to use reading strategies? Keep your mind focused on what you’re readingHelp you better understand what you’re readingHelp you connect personally to what you’re readingHelp you remember what you’re reading
5 VISUALIZE Good readers create pictures in their minds while they read. Imagine the characters, action, and setting of the text.Use your senses to activate the “movie” in your headI can picture…The movie in my head shows…I can taste/hear/smell/feel the…Sometimes this is why we don’t like the movie versions of books, they don’t match the movie in our headBetter writers use all 5 senses to help the reader visualize each moment- WIF poems
6 QUESTIONGood readers ask questions, before, during, and after reading.Ask questions of the author, yourself, and the text.What do I already know about this topic?How would I feel if this happened to me?Why did…?Who is…?What would happen if…?Why did the author include this information?See if the text answers your questions.What are some other examples of questions you ask yourself as you read?I often ask the most questions in my head at the beginning of a book.
7 CLARIFY Clarify means to make CLEAR Good readers pause and reread if they are feeling confused.Ask yourself… Can I explain to someone else what I just read? If not:Look up confusing words or ask for helpOh, I get it . . .Now I understand . . .This makes sense now . . .No, I think it means . . .At first I thought (fill in the detail), but now I think . . .This part is really saying . . .Sometimes we take mental vacations when we read. What would happen if you just kept reading after that mental vacation?
8 CONNECT Good readers find connections between the text and… Their livesOther books, movies, or songsEvents, people, or issues in the worldThat reminds me of…This made me think of…I read another book that…I saw a movie that also…I remember when…I can relate to this character’s feelings because…Often times we connect the setting to a place we’ve been before.Put yourself in the main character’s shoes. How would you feel if you were them? How are they similar/different to you?
9 PREDICT Guess what will happen next Your prediction should be based on evidence from the bookRead to confirm or revise your prediction.I predict that…I bet that…I think that…Since this happened (fill in detail), then I bet the next thing that is going to happen is…Reading this part makes me think that this (fill in detail) is about to happen.
