  • Comprehension strategies should be explicitly taught and practised. Educators should deliberately model these strategies as they read texts with learners. Encourage learners to notice what you’re doing before they practise using each strategy. Learners should do this using the same text you have read together, often re-reading it several times, before applying the strategy to a different text.
  • Explicit, focused instruction should take place in three phases as you engage with the text.
    – before reading
    – during reading
    – after reading
