Active Reading Strategies
Active readers question anything they wonder about or don't understand. Then they are on the lookout for clues to answer those questions.
Active readers predict what might happen based on the information in the story.
Active readers look for answers to their questions to clarify and gain a better understanding of the text.
Active readers relate what they are reading to their own knowledge and experience, as well as to other texts.
Active readers draw conclusions about what they have read. By evaluating a selection, active readers are able to form their own opinions about characters, actions and the selection as a whole.
Determine the meanings of new words:
Active readers try to figure out what new words mean. They may look in a dictionary, examine the different parts of the word or read surrounding text for clues.
Active readers comment on different aspects of the text according to their own beliefs and attitudes.
