“Those who wish to teach reading well need to understand just what good reading is.”

Michael Pressley (2006) Reading Instruction that Works

  • Good readers are active: they’re continually activating background knowledge, making links to what they know, asking and answering questions, re-reading, and pausing to reflect.
  • Much of this is conscious and happens before, during and after reading.
