Many children are not strategic readers of nonfiction text; they dive into reading nonfiction the same way they approach a story or a novel. But if students are to become literate readers in a world filled with an abundance of information, they need to be good readers and strategic readers. Strategic readers
- establish goals for reading;
- select reading strategies appropriate for the text they are reading;
- monitor their reading to determine if they are comprehending or not; and
- have a positive attitude toward reading.
