The Eight Reading Habits:

The Practical Application of Literacy Tools

By Jennifer Chang, L. Isabella Robertson, Heather Bennett


The eight habits of great readers

The Eight Habits of Great Readers

  • Predict

  • Visualize

  • Summarize

  • Make Connections (text to text, self, world)

  • Question

  • Make Inferences

  • Use Prior Knowledge

  • Use Text Structure


Predict

Predict

Break up suspenseful short stories into sections. Students make predictions after each cliff-hanging section

Example: Lamb to the Slaughter


Visualize

Visualize

  • Instead of asking students to draw pictures after reading text, show them a picture and ask them to write a story

    Example: The Great Migration


Summarize

Summarize

  • Read aloud a text that only the teacher has. Stop after each page and have students summarize what they just heard.

  • Example: works with any text


Make connections

Make Connections

  • Choose a realistic novel or contemporary non-fiction piece and have students brainstorm connections.

  • Example: Monster


Question

Question

  • Choose a text that is slightly above your students reading level and have them stick post-it notes next to passages that they do not understand.

  • Example: Never Cry Wolf


Make inferences

Make Inferences

  • This can be combined with a lesson on characterization. Have students make a list of judgments about a character, accompanied by the clues in the text.

  • Example: A Family Apart


Use prior knowledge

Use Prior Knowledge

  • Choose a historical piece that relates to the time period they are studying in Social Studies. Have students apply that knowledge to their understanding of the novel.

  • Example: Red Scarf Girl / China’s Cultural Revolution


Use text structure

Use Text Structure

  • Choose a novel that uses multiple genres and have students identify and copy the genres in their own writing.

  • Example: Tears of A Tiger
