‘THINK ABOUT IT’  READING STRATEGIES – Investigative Reading Strategies

Readers take on the role of reviewer and connector. They use reasoning and background knowledge to:

  • Explore ideas about fact and opinion
  • Understand the meaning of a word within a given context
  • Draw inferences from a passage about its contents
  • Ability to recognize literary devices
  • Link up ideas within a text enabling readers to get meaning from passages and entire texts
