Adolescent Literacy: Reading Strategies

This long list of reading strategies offers help with reading comprehension. Some of these ideas are geared toward teacher instruction, but many are very accessible to the middle school and high school students to use on their own. For teachers, there is an explanation of the procedure for implementing each strategy as well as an example of what it looks like. Many of the ideas use partners or small groups, and several are suitable for whole-class instruction. A great strategy for a student to use independently is TOAST, test, organize, anchor, say, test, which can be used for reviewing vocabulary.
