Teaching Comprehension Skills in Secondary School.
Early, Margaret J.
Understanding ideas, drawing inferences, and recognizing the author's organization and purpose are teachable comprehension skills. Prereading discussions can stimulate students to think before reading, to survey the material, and to raise questions which focus attention while reading. A study guide can develop comprehension through careful questioning which causes students to reason and to draw inferences, and post-reading discussions will allow students to develop thought processes as they verbalize their own thinking. Finally, practice in analyzing the learning process, work in oral reading, use of the cloze procedure, and time and practice help teachers to develop students' comprehension skills. (RT)
