Comprehension

Comprehension is having the ability to read and understand a variety of texts. Students with excellent comprehension have the ability to question, form opinions and reflect. Comprehension is vital in understanding a text, to connect and enjoy the love of reading. The lessons and units have been designed to create deep and meaningful ‘modelled, guided and independent’ opportunities, allowing students to explore and understand the different comprehension strategies. Lessons are differentiated and open- ended. They also include a formative assessment to help teachers with their own lesson development and ‘where to next’.
