Students with receptive language disabilities have a difficult time with listening comprehension. Organizing the ideas they are hearing or reading can be difficult for them. Students need to be explicitly taught strategies to help them listen and understand instruction and information they encounter in class.
These anchor charts each list a comprehension strategy. The anchor chart has the name of the strategy, how to use it, and when the strategy would be useful. Each strategy should be taught explicitly.
Some of these strategies are used as part of SIOP instruction. Others came from other sources.
You will need to provide passages at your student’s grade or reading level for them to practice using the strategy. Each student needs to have ample practice with each strategy in order to be able to use the strategy independently.
Hanging anchor charts on the wall or placing them on student desks can help students use strategies independently. You may also want to give a copy of the anchor chart to the student’s teacher and send a copy home so parents can cue the strategy when working on homework.
