Things Good Readers Do

Teaching students what a good reader does is important. These are items they are good strategies to teach to students.

*Look at the cover and title.
*Look at the pictures and read some of the text.

*Ask who, what, when, where, why, and how.
*Decide if what you've read makes sense.

*Wonder about what will happen next.
*Make guesses and read ahead to see if your predictions are correct.

*Imagine the details.
*Use what you've read to understand what the author means.

*Relate what you've read to what you know, and to your thoughts and feelings.
*Compare what you've read to other texts and to the world around you.

*Organize and connect the details.
*Draw your own conclusions.

*Think about what you've read.
*What did you learn?
*Was it important to you? Why or why not?
*Did you like it? Why or why not?
