  • What are Reading Strategies?

     

    Reading strategies are purposeful, cognitive actions that students take when they are reading to help them construct and maintain meaning.  Reading successfully goes well beyond fluency and word recognition and relies heavily upon comprehension of text.   Since reading is a meaning-making task, any behaviors used to enhance student understanding help to create more effective readers.   Reading strategies are often categorized as those behaviors designed to help students before, during, and after they read.
