Reading comprehension is important for academic success and is a skill required for many activities in school and beyond. With the implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), many teachers have reported feeling overwhelmed by the expectations that reading and writing skills should be emphasized, taught, and supported in the content area classroom. This article discusses how to teach a paraphrasing strategy using the self-regulated strategy development (SRSD) model in content area texts to support the development of comprehension skills. The strategy can easily be incorporated into existing curriculum as a support for a variety of readers who struggle with comprehension and aligns well with the CCSS.
