Teaching Comprehension Skills.
Johnson, Andrew P.
Teachers cannot expect that students at any level know how to create meaning with expository text. Students' ability to comprehend expository text can be improved through the use of comprehension skills. In order to learn the skills, they need to be broken down into specific steps and taught explicitly. Six comprehension skills are described in this paper along with strategies for effective instruction. (Contains 25 references and a figure listing comprehension skills.) (Author/RS)
