Otto, Wayne; And Others
The procedures described in this report are designed to help students both develop and apply effective behaviors for understanding expository text by means of gloss--a technique that involves the use of marginal notes and other intratext notations to direct readers' attention to places in the text where the application of specific skills and strategies would aid comprehension. The first part of the report discusses skills and strategies in reading comprehension, including prior knowledge, organization, and comprehension monitoring, and provides guidelines for glossing and an introduction to the subsequent examples. The second part of the report provides several examples of gloss notation. (HTH)
