Drawing on Text Features for Reading Comprehension and Composing
Risko, Victoria J.; Walker-Dalhouse, Doris
Reading Teacher, v64 n5 p376-378 Feb 2011
Students read multiple-genre texts such as graphic novels, poetry, brochures, digitized texts with videos, and informational and narrative texts. Features such as overlapping illustrations and implied cause-and-effect relationships can affect students' comprehension. Teaching with these texts and drawing attention to organizational features hold promise for deepening students' interest, engagement, and comprehension and enhancing complexity of their compositions. ["Drawing on Text Features for Reading Comprehension and Composing" was written with Erin S. Bridges and Ali Wilson.]
