These are tips to improve your reading comprehension:
Before reading the text, ask yourself what you already know about its topic. Try to recall as much information as you can. Think of related ideas you’ve learned in the past. Make brief notes about your thoughts or discuss what you remember with others.
2. Improve Your Reading Comprehension by Researching the Topic
Background information may appear on book covers and inner flaps of book jackets. Many books include an introductory section and a mini-biography about the author. Book publisher’s websites may also include background information. Think about the information you read. Ask:
- What kind of text is this?
- What new information did I learn, and what do I expect to learn?
- Is this text informative or entertaining, fact or fiction?
- What interests me about this book?
As you read, make a list of unfamiliar vocabulary words. Look up the meanings of the words in the dictionary, and jot definitions down by hand. Writing definitions by hand will help you remember the definition much more than by typing or by reading alone.
4. Improve Your Understanding by Reflecting on the Material and Asking Questions
As you read, what questions come to mind? Read on to find the answers. You can think about the questions and answers or jot them down on paper. Research indicates that writing notes by hand can increase comprehension and recall among students who are not learning disabled in writing. For those who have LDs in writing mechanics pair the writing with discussion to improve understanding and recall.
