Reading Comprehension Strategies Flipbook
This product will allow students to practice and apply their metacognitive strategies by using their flipbooks as a reference tool during reading sessions or guided reading instruction.Students will become good readers, capable of handling any text across a curriculum.
1. Student will gain a deeper understanding of text
Good readers know how to use cognitive and metacognitive strategies together to develop a deeper understanding of a book’s theme or topic. They learn or “construct knowledge” (using cognitive strategies) through a variety of methods, and then recognize (using metacognitive strategies) when they lack understanding and, consequently, choose the right tools to correct the problem.
2. Take your students thinking to a higher level.
Students will be able to use their strategies to explain their thought process. Students will have the opportunity to take their thinking to a higher level and express themselves clearly. Small-group activities, especially those with a teacher's guidance, will provide them with multiple opportunities.
3. Life-long Tool for all learners
Students will be able to transfer use of these skills from their school lives to their personal lives and will continue to apply them as grow into adults.
Metacognition Reading is a three-part process For students to be successful thinkers, they must:
1. Develop a plan before reading.
2. Monitor their understanding of text; use “fix-up” strategies when meaning breaks down.
3. Evaluate their thinking after reading.
