Posters are created to look professional when printed on 18x24 or 24x36 poster paper and hung on the wall as anchor-charts. Of course, 8.5x11 posters work well, also.
I use these tools and strategies every day with 7th and 8th graders, but especially frequently in Title I classes, Academic Intervention Services, and tutoring. I also give many of these tools to parents of struggling readers so that students have effective strategies to use at home.
Some of these strategies are adapted from ideas originated by Chris Tovani in “I Read It, But I Don’t Get It” and Nancy N. Boyles in “Constructing Meaning Through Kid-Friendly Comprehension Strategies.”
