Deeper Comprehension 101

Comprehension is the end towards which all readers aspire. Making sense of text, connecting its message to one’s store of knowledge and experience, and deriving meaning from the words on a page—this is what reading is ultimately for and about. 

Given its importance, and the difficulties that many children face in attaining full reading comprehension, Save the Children decided to develop this Deeper Comprehension 101 resource. These activities are designed to expand children’s vocabulary; strengthen their thinking and problem solving skills while reading; and boost their ability to respond, react, and connect to texts.
