Activating prior knowledge
Activating Prior Knowledge information from text

  • In order for students to make a connection of information from what they know to learning new knowledge, teachers can activate prior knowledge in order to help students make those connections.

  • This is also helpful in getting rid of any preconceived notions the reader has that may be incomplete or incorrect.

Analyzing text structure
Analyzing Text Structure information from text

  • Reading text that is not narrative is often difficult for students because they are unable to recognize the different patterns of text. Dymock and Nicholson think that teaching students the different text structures will greatly increase their abilities to comprehend the reading of texts.


Creating mental images
Creating Mental Images information from text

  • Creating mental images allows readers to see what they are reading. With expository text, this is often more difficult with narrative text. Narrative text allows readers to use their senses to experience the reading. Expository text may be more difficult to picture, so using the graphic organizers from the text structure section may help students to visualize the text and better understand what the author is trying to portray.


Summarizing
Summarizing information from text

  • Important for Two Things:

    • Finding Main Ideas: Students need to be able to pick out the main points in what they read.

    • Discussing the Text : Students should be able to talk about what they read with other students, by doing this they show that understanding.
