Reading Strategies

Thank you Paul, for sharing the website UNL ~ Cognitive Strategy Instruction.



According to this website, "Strategy instruction is one of the most effective ways of improving academic performance for children with learning difficulties. This site will show you how to do it, will provide examples or strategies, and provide a forum to discuss your experiences and questions."

Take a look at the strategies they suggest for Word Identification
Dissect
SCUBA D

Here's a couple for Reading Comprehension
Active Reading
CAPS
FIST
RAP
RIDER

Even more for Textbook Reading
Multipass
PARS
POSSE
SCROL

There are really quite a few more strategies than those I have linked to here. For a complete list of what this website has to offer click HERE. Once you get to the main page click on where it says "Reading" in the left hand margin and that will take you the list of reading strategies in its entirety.
