Comprehension Strategies Resources

The KIP promotes the learning and teaching of decoding and comprehension strategies for reading, using the following reading process model.

In particular, it promotes how to teach nine key strategies for reading comprehension— use what I already know; predict; visualise; make connections; question; self-monitor; infer; summarise and synthesise — as well as skim and scan.

Comprehension Posters and Teacher Booklet

The KIP resources help students and teachers to develop these strategies:

  • Posters – Reading Comprehension Strategies Posters
  • Booklet for teachers – “Reading Strategies: Teacher Questions and Sentence Prompts”
  • Booklet for students – “Reading Strategies Student Guide KS2”

Hard copies of the posters and the teacher question book are available from the NET Section office.

Use of Resources

The posters are important resources for shared, guided and supported reading lessons. They are a concrete prompt for teachers to point to and talk about strategies that students can use when trying to comprehend text. Teachers can invite students to talk about strategies.

Schools may find the online posters useful for making e-resources or printing relevant posters or pages for students.

The teacher booklet can help teachers design questions or use sentence prompts to model ‘thinking aloud’ language, so that students see how they can help themselves with comprehension.

Ideally, KS2 students could access the Reading Strategies Student Guide, so they can develop the skills independently. This can cater for learner diversity and develop self-directed learning skills.

To enhance the teaching content, teachers can exercise their professional judgment and consult relevant scholarly work when adopting the learning and teaching resources prepared by educators and other teachers. In support of the implementation of the English Language Education KLA Curriculum, teachers can also select appropriate parts of the resources for classroom learning or extended learning based on pedagogical consideration and the learning needs of students.
