Key Comprehension Strategies to Teach Click the "References" link above to hide these references. 1. Dole, J. A., Duffy, G. Teaching Reading Traditionally, the purpose of learning to read in a language has been to have access to the literature written in that language. In language instruction, reading materials have traditionally been chosen from literary texts that represent "higher" forms of culture. This approach assumes that students learn to read a language by studying its vocabulary, grammar, and sentence structure, not by actually reading it. In this approach, lower level learners read only sentences and paragraphs generated by textbook writers and instructors. The reading of authentic materials is limited to the works of great authors and reserved for upper level students who have developed the language skills needed to read them.

Graphic Organizers for Content Instruction One of our roles as ESL and bilingual specialists is to encourage mainstream teachers to employ teaching techniques which make content area information more accessible to second language learners. Content materials present text which is too dense for ELLs. Teach your students to use graphic organizers such as webs, Venn diagrams, and charts to help them better comprehend these texts. These are visual tools that help ELLs understand and organize information.

This website has plenty of graphic organizers so that students can visualize their ideas. This helps them have a better comprehension by mlopezflores Mar 10

These graphic organizers can be used with any book and across grade levels. Students can use them to visualize how ideas fit together and construct meaning. And teachers can use them to assess students' understanding of what they are reading, observe their thinking process on what they're reading as well as identify the strengths and weaknesses of those thought processes. by mcussen Feb 17
