Strategic Reading: What the Mind Needs to Do to Read Nonfiction

Strategic Reading: What the Mind Needs to Do to Read Nonfiction | Education | Scoop.it
By Nancy AkhavanMany 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.
