It's Not So Hard: Preparing Students for Reading Comprehension.
Thompson, Edgar H.
Schools in the Middle, v2 n3 p33-36 Spr 1993
Majority of middle level students should be able to comprehend texts if teachers first prepare students for learning, provide adequate support during reading, and help students expend and apply what they have read to situations outside text. Suggested techniques include using graphic organizers and pattern guides to outline narrative and expository texts and writing before and after class discussions. (MLH)
