4. Effective Comprehension Strategy Instruction
Play • 18 min


Comprehension is one of the most important parts of reading instruction. It can also be one of the most challenging to teach, wouldn't you agree? A student's background, knowledge, and life experiences may cause them to comprehend a text differently than their same aged peers, let alone their teacher!


Put twenty or thirty students in a room and there are countless numbers of personal experiences that will influence the way they interpret text. I remember the challenges I faced while in the classroom with varied learning style. Luckily, I learned ways to help students feel confident in utilizing their comprehension strategies. Now I'm going to share those ideas with you to help make your reading instruction that much more effective!


In this episode I share:

  • Challenges faced when teaching reading comprehension
  • 5 tips to effectively teach comprehension skills
  • Ways to get student buy-in
  • Strategies to build student confidence
  • The overall purpose of teaching comprehension strategies
