Abstract

The capacity to understand written text and to learn from it is critical for living in the information-rich world of the 21st century. Many students have difficulty doing this. One approach to helping them is to give them more texts to comprehend. This usually does not work because it does not teach them how to comprehend each text; that is, how to act upon and think effectively about the information in the text. The focus of this chapter is on teaching students who have literacy learning difficulties how to comprehend text more effectively. The need for explicit instruction with this focus was noted in recent reports, both in the United States (NICHD, 2000) and in Australia (Rowe, 2005).
