LETRS Module 6: Digging for Meaning: Teaching Text Comprehension

Administered by NCESD


  • Shanna Brooks


This module discusses and illustrates the many conditions, skills, processes, and abilities that influence reading comprehension outcomes. Teachers are helped to anticipate the cognitive and linguistic challenges students face as the read narrative and expository text. Participants examine the text, reader, task, and context variables that have an impact on comprehension. They also analyze the challenges of written language processing at the word, phrase, sentence, paragraph, and discourse levels; consider how inferences are made; and learn how to foster the metacognitive and strategic skills that good readers employ.
