Comprehension and the Super Six
Comprehension involves responding to, interpreting, analysing and evaluating texts by using metacognitive comprehension strategies including visualising, making connections, predicting, questioning, summarising and monitoring.
The "Super Six" is a fun way of remembering the key strategies that we, as effective readers, use to understand texts that we are reading, viewing and/or listening to. The aim in explicitly teaching these strategies to our students is not to create students who successfully ask questions or visualise sections of a text...the goal is to effectively (and evntually automatically) use these strategies to support a deep comprehension of any text.
What great resources, ideas or successes have you had explicitly teaching comprehension?
