Diner BASICS Reading Comprehension Strategies
I grasp essential ideal and important information when reading. I differentiate between less important ideas and key ideas that are central to the meaning of the text.
I ask myself questions when I read to learn more. I understand more when I am curious.
I picture in my mind what is happening. I pay attention to descriptive details to create the best pictures. This helps me enhance and understand what I am reading.
I think about the clues the text gives me. I make a judgment, figure out a theme, or speculate about what is to come next to help me figure out what is happening in the text.
When I am reading I try to figure how each character. I think about how they are the same or different from me, how they feel, and even how they relate to other characters. This helps me understand what I am reading.
I combine new information with what I already know. Then I review, sort, and sift through it all to come up with a new idea or view of the text I am reading.
