Preview / Review This strategy tries to make the reader to look at the text deeply before reading it.
Practice What is the title? How is the book organized? How many chapters? How many pages? How is it written? Who is the auther? What many time has it been edited? What is its editorial? When was it publiished? What are the headlines? What can this book teach me? Read the introduction? What is the book about? What its its table of content? To whome is it designed? What are the references?
Why do we read? Learn Inform about an issue Get more information Answer questions Study an event Prepare a presentation Get relaxed or make fun
Before reading (over view ) Title Pages Headlines The illustrations The organization of the text The paragraph Means ides
Questioning Ask yourself what is the text ? What are the means paragraphs? What are the supporting ideas? What are going to learn? Is it important for me reading this text? How long does it take to me reading this book? Am I going to learn something?
Why is it this strategy important? Asking questions helps keep you focused on the text. If your mind wanders, you will not understand. Then you will be bored. If you run into problems, things you just don’t understand, then you can check yourself with a question.
Make Connections Text to Self (similar events in your life) Text to Text (books, movies, T.V., etc.) Text to Life (real world events CONNECT EVERY PREVIOUS EXPERENCE WITH THE TEXT
What do I already know about this? Has anything similar ever happened to me? How would I feel if this happened to me? Can I relate to the characters? Does this story remind me of something?
Determine Importance Pick and choose which details are the most important to remember. Think about what a teacher might ask on a test. Think about what the author hints might be important later on.
Infer and Predict Good readers are like detectives. They use clues to determine what is happening in a story. This is called INFERENCE! What do I predict will happen? Why do I think so?
Infer and Predict Good readers also make educated guesses about what may happen later in the story. They use the author’s hints to PREDICT what will most likely occur.
Visualize Picture in your mind the images the author creates with his/her words. Pay close attention to sensory details. For example, if you were there, what would you SEE, HEAR, SMELL, TASTE, TOUCH, FEEL?
Why visualizing is important? If you don’t picture the events of the story, you will get bored. The author’s job is to paint pictures in the reader’s mind. The reader’s job is to visualize what the author describes. Why not?
Synthesize o What does it all mean? o What’s the big idea? o Are there questions still left unanswered? o What are the lessons I should learn? o What do I think about this book?
Synthesize Synthesize is a fancy way of saying that you must bring everything together in the end. In other words, what is the meaning of what you are reading?
Use Fix Up Strategies Here are some examples of Fix Up Strategies: ☻ Re-read ☻ Underline ☻ Use a Dictionary ☻ Read Aloud ☻ Ask for Help
Check Your Understanding If confusion disrupts meaning, readers need to stop and clarify their understanding. Readers may use a variety of strategies to “fix up” comprehension when meaning goes awry.” Harvey and Goudvis
Expand Vocabulary The larger the reader’s vocabulary (either oral or print), the easier it is to make sense of the text.”
Reading for gist Reading for getting the means ideas of the text wiothout taking in mind the whole text. Others oponions Means ideas on a text
Reading to extract details or information Understand certain aspects of the text that interest you to read the text. Example: Read cell-phone manual. What information are you trying to learn?
