Teach students HOW to monitor understanding and clarify thinking when reading.

Distance Learning and 1:1 Google Classroom ready!

There's more to figuring out what's going on in a text than just simply re-reading.

4 PRO TIPS to help your students REPAIR COMPREHENSION

Use this lesson to give students a process to help them monitor their understanding as they read. Help students clarify their thinking by making a point, use evidence from the text, and then explain how that evidence proves their point.  

The slideshow lesson is comprehensive, easy to use and includes everything you need for :

  • DISTANCE LEARNING or 1:1 LEARNING in Google Classroom
  • FACE to FACE LEARNING in your real classroom

In this package, you get:

  • the slideshow lesson to walk your students through 4 pro tips to using the Repairing Comprehension strategy and an example of how to use this strategy..
  • a generic Repairing Comprehension handout package that can be used with any text. This helps students ask questions before, during, and after reading. 
  • a metacognition handout/reflection questions to help students reflect on the strategy
  • a rubric to assess ideas generated during reading, as well as ideas generated during the metacognition reflection.

BONUS VIDEO LESSON: I’ve recorded the slideshow as a FREE YOUTUBE VIDEO so it’s easier to teach with DISTANCE LEARNING:

IMPORTANT NOTE: This product DOES NOT include a text for students to read! 

The package only includes the Inferring strategy slideshow lesson and handouts.

It is intended for teachers to use with a novel or text that they are studying in class. 

If you would like to use the informational text in this slideshow about "California surfer breaks stereotypes", you can find the article here.

Reading comprehension strategies like REPAIRING COMPREHENSION help students engage with the text and gain a deeper understanding than just passively reading.
