Text Comprehension: Scaffolding Active Strategic Reading
Intermediate: Understanding and learning from academic texts involves purposeful, strategic reading. There is considerable evidence on what makes an effective and comprehensive reading instruction program. However, S-LPs need to be strategic about their roles within this large picture. An aspect of this instruction program that is particularly suited to the expertise and resources of S-LPs involves teaching students to use text comprehension strategies, such as text preview, summarization, and comprehension monitoring in their academic reading and learning. This talk presents the research evidence on strategy instruction, including the use of explicit instruction, spoken interactions around text, cognitive modeling, peer learning, classroom connections and disciplinary literacy. The talk focuses on transferring comprehension strategies from teaching tools of the S-LP to learning tools of the student.
