Active Comprehension



Active Comprehension is a collection of comprehension activities that encourages a hands-on approach to engaging with texts. As the name implies, the activities get students doing; drawing, cutting, pasting, manipulating and physically organising their response to texts.

Skills include predicting, summarising, evaluating, inferring, making connections, finding information, and many more.

The resource is ideal for visual and kinaesthetic learners, dyslexic students, ESOL students, reluctant readers and writers and students with special needs.
