Comprehension

UURC Student Reading

Comprehension focus occurs during two components of the lesson, during guided reading and during the read-to. Suggested activities include previewing the story, activating and building student's background knowledge, setting a purpose for reading, and helping students to predict, summarize, and answer questions.

To further this goal, the UURC has created a bookmark that contains suggested questions for the reading tutor to use during the guided reading and read-to components of the lesson. To see a mock-up of the bookmark, follow this link.
