In accordance with the most recent findings of cognitive psychology and the applied science of learning, we believe that reading comprehension not only implies acquiring a set of highly complex, well-developed, and well-practiced skills and abilities, but also, as stated by the Texas Education Agency, most important is the mode in which good readers dynamically and deliberately coordinate these "skills" and "strategies" before, during, and after reading a text: *BEFORE READING, good readers tend to set goals for their reading. They note the structure, or organization of the text, and often create a mental overview or outline of the text to help them decide whether it is relevant to their goals. *DURING READING, good readers read words accurately and quickly, and simultaneously deal with the meanings of those words - as well as the meanings of the phrases and sentences into which the words are grouped. Good readers connect the meaning of one sentence to the meaning of another. If something is confusing to them, they use their background knowledge to try to clarify the meanings of words and phrases. Sometimes good readers interact with the text by asking themselves questions about its content and reflecting on its ideas. They are adept at using their background knowledge to make predictions about what might happen next and to understand ideas as they encounter them. Good readers continuously evaluate their predictions and revise them as needed. *AFTER READING, good readers often think about, or reflect on what they read. They may mentally summarize major points or events in the text, or even go to other sources to find additional information about the topic of the reading. In short, good readers are most often strategic readers. That is, they use a number of comprehension strategies to get meaning from text. Comprehension strategies are conscious plans or procedures that are under the control of a reader, who makes decisions about which strategies to use and when to use them.
