Triadic Approach to Reading Comprehension Strategy Instruction.
Sorrell, Adrian Lloyd
This conference paper provides examples of reading comprehension strategies that can be used with students with learning disabilities or reading comprehension difficulties. Before reading, during reading, and after reading strategies are presented. The before reading strategies, which activate the students' background knowledge and attention, include brainstorming, structured questions, a pre-reading plan that assists students in accessing knowledge related to the major concepts presented in a passage, and a strategy called "K-W-L" (What I Know, What I Want to Learn, What I Did Learn), TELLS (study title, examine pages and find what story is about, look for important words, look for hard words, identify setting) Fact or Fiction, and advance organizers. During reading strategies include using reciprocal questioning techniques (ReQuest), self-questioning, visual imagery in which students develop their own pictures for the story, and story mapping. Post-reading strategies that are presented include story retelling, paraphrasing, and using a strategy called "Question-Answer Relationship" to teach students to become aware of the different types of questions asked in stories.
