A KWL chart is an excellent pre-reading and post-reading strategy!
The R.A.F.T. strategy helps students understand their roles as writers, the audience they will address, the varied formats for writing, and the topic they'll be writing about; it also allows for a variety of choices for students to express what they understand of the text.
This strategy helps students improve their reading comprehension by teaching them how to ask meaningful questions about their reading and how to find those answers.
Jigsaw -small groups, each with students of different ability levels, collaborate and share their interpretations and ideas about the reading; this emphasizes cooperative learning by providing students an opportunity to actively help each other build comprehension
Students first sit alone and think individually about the reading, then they pair up with a partner and share their ideas.
Reflection - students write a personal reflection on the reading
