Reading to Learn

Trinity L.  Dyess

Comprehension in the goal of reading.  The reader must be able to comprehend what they are reading or reading would not be important.  To be able to comprehend the reader must be able to understand the text and what it is telling the reader.  During this lesson, I will help the students with their summarization skills by helping them to pick out the important information in the text.  This will lead to comprehension!

In order to assess the students, I will have them turn in their completed work when they have finished.  If it looks like the students need more help, we will go over more of the article in class.  If it is just a few, I will pull them aside and help them individually.  Also, I will ask the students comprehension questions regarding the article that they read.  This will allow me to know if the understood what they read!
