The Resource Room

Reading Comprehension


Books & Materials from the Resource Room:


These links and resources focus on the foundation skills of reading and language comprehension, and for providing structure and scaffolding - a "leg up" to enable students to use waht they read. It should be stressed, however, that the strategies themselves can simply be another layer of confusion for an already struggling student. Unless a strategy and its purpose are carefully taught with student-owned learning in mind, and practiced and incorporated into that learning, they will be from the student's perspective yet one more inexplicable, arbitrary ritual to be performed because the teacher is in charge.
