Reading Comprehension Strategies
1.
 
Schema/Making connections— 
between texts, the world, and students' lives(sometimes called text-to-text, text-to-world, and text-to-self connections). Readersbring their background knowledge and experiences of life to a text.2.
 
Creating mental images
. These "mind pictures" help readers enter the text visually intheir mind's eye.3.
 
Asking questions
. Readers who use this strategy actively ask questions of the text asthey read.4.
 
Determining importance
. This strategy describes a reader's conscious and ongoingdetermination of what is important in a text.5.
 
Inferring 
. When readers infer, they create new meaning on the basis of their lifeexperiences and clues from the book.6.
 
Synthesizing 
. Although this strategy is sometimes considered a retell, synthesizing isa way of spiraling deeper into the book. Readers might explore the text through theperspective of different characters to come to new understandings about thecharacter's life and world.
