Comprehension in the Content Areas, 3-6, Strategies for Basic Skills.
Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu. Office of Instructional Services.
This handbook is for use by content area teachers in grades three through six who want to help students improve their comprehension of both oral and written language. The first three chapters discuss the nature of comprehension and establish the general philosophical framework for the strategies and activities that make up the major portion of the book. The activities and strategies are arranged according to one of three levels. Those activities listed at the first level of instruction are designed to concentrate specifically on the language, experience, thinking, or word recognition needs of students in order to build their foundation for comprehension. The activities offered at the second level are intended to establish specific language, experience, and thinking linkages and to enhance concept development. The instructional strategies presented at the third level integrate and link the language, experience, and thinking activities for the first level into more holistic strategies for the purpose of concept development. Appendixes provide assessment samples and techniques, planning considerations for enhancing comprehension in the content areas, and suggestions for applying the techniques to specific content areas.
