Extended Notions of Grammar and Reading Comprehension.
Wolfram, Walt
Full reading comprehension is dependent on a knowledge of language usage, specifically, how syntactic constructions function in relation to pragmatic knowledge. To avoid some of the problems which might arise concerning the pragmatic aspects of reading comprehension, the following steps may be taken: teach children very early the relationship between reading and language usage; encourage children to expect books to match their knowledge of the real world; and reinforce these steps by having students collect folk tales and compile reading material from them, peruse comic books for illustrations of text, and act out scenes from books they read.
