Skilled reading is an important requisite for achievement in other subject areas. Learners must be able to read and understand written material on various topics, learn from different kinds of text, and interpret and use the information they read to complete academic tasks. Such tasks may include answering questions about or summarizing what they’ve read, identifying relevant and irrelevant information in word problems, comparing and contrasting ideas, providing supporting evidence for a particular idea, and the like. All these require reading comprehension skills and learners would benefit greatly from being taught how to monitor or aid their comprehension as they work on these tasks.

Teaching text comprehension and text evaluation strategies can help learners in tasks as varied as:

  • Evaluating references for research
  • Mathematics word problem-solving
  • Activating prior knowledge to understand the historical context of events or to develop conceptual understanding
The CEM Online Training on Powering Literacy Development with Direct and Explicit Instruction of Reading Comprehension will walk participants through how to teach text comprehension and text evaluation strategies using the direct instruction approach. The comprehension strategies have been selected for their broad applicability to various texts, while the text evaluation strategies have been selected to provide approaches suitable for evaluating informational texts. Integrating instruction on these strategies in your lessons will help empower students to be more strategic and independent learners.
