Picture It!
Naughton, Victoria M.
Reading Teacher, v62 n1 p65-68 Sep 2008
The Picture It! reading strategy uses the elements of story grammar and visualization in a mnemonic format to enhance comprehension, aid vocabulary development, visually establish story sequence, and stimulate discussion of both the big picture of the story's meaning and the details which support the author's message. It is a strategy that can be used by the youngest readers, but it is adaptable to adult readers as well. Although artistic in concept, Picture It! does not require a student to have strong drawing skills. The process of creating the visual itself is an aid in the overall understanding of the story. (Contains 3 figures.)
