Description

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. Rather than writing down their thoughts, students are invited to respond visually. They use graphic organisers, maps, diagrams, flow charts and concept webs to guide their exploration through the text.

The tasks included:

  • Have a clear start and finish
  • Have a recognisable structure
  • Are predominantly visual
  • Allow students to physically organise their thoughts
  • Require minimal writing

Skills used include predicting, summarising, evaluating, inferring, making connections, finding information, and many more. Well organised and easy to use, Active Comprehension is ideal for visual and kinaesthetic learners, dyslexic students, ESOL students, reluctant readers and writers and students with special needs.
