Comprehension Strategy Self-Assessment
  • Purpose: The goal of this assignment is for you to become aware of the active reading strategies you currently use when reading gets hard, practice using all of these strategies, and reflect on how these practices may improve your own reading and study skills.
  • Directions: You should follow the directions as outlined on the assignment sheet. First, read your challenging text the way you would normally. Then, be sure to read the handout that accompanies the directions to help you better understand how to use each strategy as part of your comprehension problem-solving process. Then, reread a short section of text and complete the strategy chart, taking time to practice and reflect on your use of each comprehension strategy.
