Developing Comprehension of Content Material through Strategies Other Than Questioning.
Ribovich, Jerilyn K.
Questioning as an after-reading activity is not sufficient alone as a strategy to develop reading comprehension. This paper presents instructional strategies to support comprehension throughout a student's particular reading encounter. Included are four strategies which involve students: (1) have students specify content expectancies in a variety of forms and then read with a focus on the expected and unexpected; (2) direct students in writing experiences to help them become more than just familiar with material organization and author style; (3) discuss and provide activities for self-monitoring for those experiencing extreme difficulty in comprehension; and (4) stimulate concept development and thinking processes prior to reading particular material.
