When readers monitor their comprehension, they keep track of their thinking while reading. They listen to the voice in their head that speaks to them as the read. They notice when the text makes sense or when it doesn't. Monitor Comprehension helps you teach readers how to "fix up" their comprehension by using a variety of strategies including stopping to refocus thinking, rereading, and reading on. Throughout readers learn to monitor and use strategies to maintain understanding and repair comprehension when it breaks down.
The seven accompanying video clips include a video conversation with Dr. P. David Pearson and slideshows of an active literacy classroom, an assessment overview, and strategy instruction in science and social studies.
