Reading Comprehension

Select an informational text from Appendix B of the Common Core standards for English Language Arts.  Research a minimum of five reading comprehension-teaching strategies.  Develop a graphic organizer for each strategy:

  1. Each graphic organizer will support the comprehension strategy being used.
  2. Design the graphic organizers around the informational text and strategy.
  3. Include a summary of 1-2 paragraphs for each graphic organizer explaining how you would use this in a comprehension lesson.
  4. Include your rationale. Specify the potential benefits of using each graphic organizer and how it will support assessment of knowledge.

Use the GCU Library to research 3-5 peer-reviewed articles in support of your content.

While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide.
