The purpose of this Webquest is to provide awareness regarding reading comprehension strategies that should be used in content-area classrooms before, during and after reading assignments.

Introduction

How often have you asked your class to read pages 100 - 125 ? Then asked a few questions that led to the realization that a lot of the students did not get anything or understand much of the reading.

Do you wonder what you could be doing to help the non-proficient reader to better understand your content-area textbook?

Here, you will find the answers! You will learn comprehension strategies to do BEFORE, DURING, AND AFTER reading to help ensure understanding.
