Teaching Reading Comprehension

Simple strategies to improve Reading Comprehension skills

Make a difference to Reading Comprehension across the curriculum

How do pupils deeply comprehend what they read? How do they move from decoding to an understanding of layers of meaning and making connections with prior knowledge? How should all teachers across the curriculum be supporting pupils to progress their reading?
