Reading Strategy for the Week


Why do we Monitor/Clarify?

  • To make sense of our reading

When do we Monitor/Clarify?

  • When the reading no longer makes sense
  • When we are stuck on a word’s meaning

How do we Monitor/Clarify?

  • Reread all around the word or area in question.  Make substitutions, use picture clues
  • Use your schema, what you already know
  • Study the structure
  • Predict, infer, make connections, ask questions, summarize
