Reading Comprehension. Bulletin No. 9511.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
The intent of this publication is to provide an opportunity for educators to consider reading comprehension as dependent, at least in part, on specific features of written language. Chapter 1 discusses a theoretical framework for thinking, problem solving, and reading comprehension. Chapter 2 deals with teaching word-level comprehension, presenting a nine-level taxonomy of word-level relationships and techniques for teaching words at each level. Chapter 3 offers ideas about sentence comprehension for reading teachers to consider. Chapter 4 deals with the comprehension of passages by asking readers to consider three questions and their possible answers--"Comprehension of what, for what purpose, and how much is required?" (RL)
