Reading Road Maps acts as an “expert reader” for students, demonstrating and implementing good comprehension strategies. Reading road maps help students read independently by having each reader interact with the text while reading. The road maps utilize specific skills for high-level reading, such as inferring, predicting, summarizing, and visualizing. At times, the road map “models” good comprehension strategies by commenting on elements in the book using proven methods for comprehension. Students can self-select books, and you can monitor their progress.
