It is so important for students to be able to understand what they are reading, or the whole purpose of reading is null and void. I geared the following unit toward struggling readers, especially those struggling with comprehension so they will be able to enjoy what they read. It will work best with a small group of students working with a teacher; though using it in a whole class setting would be beneficial as well. Students will use a variety of strategies to work on comprehension including some of the strategies recommended in my annotated bibliography. More specifically, student will create a visual in their head, use graphic organizers, and summarize what they read. Using these strategies and more, students will be better equipped to understand what they read and learn to enjoy reading and writing.
