a Simple Reading Strategy that everyone can do!
Acquire and apply a reading strategy that can be used for any text in your class.
There is a simple reading strategy that is a way to get students to think about a piece of text critically. Text coding is a strategy that instructs students to use letters and symbols that they jot down while reading a text. Not only does it increase comprehension, but also student engagement.
How do I get students to critically read a textbook chapter?
How do I make sure they are prepared for a class discussion based on what they read?
What strategy can I use to help students interact with the textbook?
My study guide questions aren’t cutting it…now what?
What: A metacognitive strategy that helps students monitor their comprehension while reading.
Why: Some students tend to “stray” while reading a text, especially if the content is difficult. Coding helps students “stay” with the text. Students monitor their own understanding as they read in order to fix problems as they occur.
Well, if you use it with your whole class it is a strategy.
If you use it with a small group based on a need, it is an intervention.
If you use it with an individual student based on a need, it is an intervention.
Look at the motorcycle repair manual handout.
Write down at least 3 codes as you read.
