1-min Eltt guide – How Do You Teach Reading Comprehension?

1. Pre-reading I:

  • use brainstorming or spider maps,
  • read the title and subtitles for students,
  • encourage prediction and guessing.

2. First reading should be for gist (skimming):

Pupils read silently to answer a question that aims for the general theme of the text.

3. Second reading should be for details (scanning):

Pupils read again to remember details. I would allow pupils to read questions to realize for what purpose they are reading.

4. Post-reading I: 

  • discuss the text with students,
  • ask students to evaluate the text and give opinions.
