Reading Strategies

 

Active Reading Strategies

 

Use these strategies to help your understanding and appreciation of your reading.

 

Predict:  Try to figure out what will happen next and how the story might end.  Read on to see if you were right.

 

Visualize:  Form an image in your mind of characters, events, and setting to help you understand what’s happening.

 

Connect: Think of similarities between the story and what you have personally experienced, heard about, and read about.

 

Question:  Search for reasons behind events and characters’ feelings.  You may wonder why the author included certain events.

 

Clarify:   Stop to review and check your understanding of what you are reading.  You may have to reread or use outside resources to develop a full understanding.

 

Evaluate:  Form opinions about what you read, both while you are reading and after you’ve finished.  Develop your own ideas about characters and events.

 

Summarize:  Tell the main events or ideas and important details briefly and in your own words.
