Comprehension monitoring, a skill used by successful readers, can be explicitly taught to boost students’ reading comprehension in language arts and across content areas. Make the most of multiple strategy instruction with high-leverage strategies that students can apply across texts with increasing independence over time.

  • Learn metacognitive and “fix up” strategies
  • Distinguish between explicit and implicit information to formulate inferences and conclusions
  • Apply text structure to build and confirm understanding
  • Utilize think alouds and questioning techniques to directly teach comprehension monitoring within a gradual release framework
