Skimming helps a reader make decisions about the usefulness or appropriateness of a text. When we skim we quickly identify words, pictures and text features that stand out. Skimming helps a reader know quickly if a non-fiction text will give them information they need or if a fiction book will interest them. Skimming is a great start to activating prior knowledge.
This book will give teachers across the primary grades ideas for teaching, practising and reflecting on using skimming.
