Reading Comprehension Teaching Strategies

There are some great strategies you can incorporate to help you enhance your students' reading comprehension skills. Students should be able to 'question' things during the phases of pre-reading, while reading and after reading. These 'questioning techniques' help them further understand the text and hence improve their reading comprehension skills.

There are some great strategies you can incorporate to help you enhance your students’ reading comprehension skills. Students should be able to ‘question’ things during the phases of pre-reading, while reading and after reading. These ‘questioning techniques’ help them further understand the text and hence improve their reading comprehension skills.

Here are some techniques you can use with ESL / ELL or any mainstream or struggling reader:

  • Always monitor understanding (continuously as you read the text). This is an important step as it helps you know whether you should repeat or re-read the information.
  • Be aware of what the students do understand and what they don’t yet understand. This might involve some pre-planned graphic organisers which would help you in recognising the students’ possible difficulties in understanding.
  • Prepare lots and lots of ways that you can ‘question’ the students as you are reading the text. This is essential, the students’ reactions to your questions pertaining to the text will help you identify areas of difficulties or understanding.

Here is a great video showing you some simple ways you could teach reading strategies in your classroom.

Before, During and After Questions: Promoting Reading Comprehension and Critical Thinking

From the author: “Students ask questions pertaining to a text before, during and after reading to build comprehension.”

Groundhog and Leap Day Reading Comprehension Passages

These passages can be used in several ways. I laminate and use them with dry erase markers as the kids highlight the information they need as they read the questions on the bottom of each ‘text’.

Another way you could use these cards is to print the black and white versions of the task cards and have the kids working on them independently. After they’re done with reading and responding to the text, they will then glue them into their notebooks!
