Reading Comprehension Strategies made explicit in classrooms

I visited Matthew Needlemans blog and really like the way his is trying to get his students to anchor their reading comprehension skills through the creation of posters that students can connect to. Often charts displayed in rooms don’t provide reminders to students about strategies they can use when learning and Matthew’s works in progress I think take us forward in this area. Of course no matter what we display students need to have these strategies modelled for them by the teacher and have the language unpacked so they can make connections. It’s worth a look.

    I’m glad you like the posters and thanks for the link. What you’re showing on your blog, however, is the bookmark. You are right about the modeling of strategies. The posters themselves have sentence frames on the back to further assist students in using the reading strategies.
