  • Inferential (hidden) Heart

  • Evaluative (head)

How do we teach assess comprehension
How do we teach/assess comprehension?

All strategies for comprehending are taught through:

  • Modelled lessons - the teacher explicitly demonstrate and teaches the skill/strategy to be learnt. Students practice set activities

  • Guided lessons – the students work in small groups or as an individual under the guidance of the teacher. Specific activities are planned to guide students to the next level of learning

  • Independent lessons – students work in small groups or as an individual to independently apply the skills/knowledge/strategies learnt to demonstrate their learning
