Reading strategies

Telling pupils to read a text is often an inadequate instruction if you would like them to really understand and learn about the content of the text. One of my colleagues found this eleven-point plan that can help pupils approach a text for the first time: Reading to understand a text and build your vocabulary. It can probably be used on most texts, but I think it is particularly useful when approaching somewhat complicated texts with a lot of information. Photo from flickr: "Day 79 - Focu+s"
