Reading Comprehension Packet
With this packet of eight products in their repertoire, speech language pathologists, tutors, and teachers will be able to effectively help their adolescent and young adult students improve their ability to comprehend and interpret content. The first two products, Word Roots and Prefixes and Suffixes, work directly on expanding students’ vocabulary, while the next, Using Context Clues, teaches students strategies for figuring out the meaning of unfamiliar words. Obfuscations is a favorite of my students: it appeals to both puzzle solvers and creators and is quite challenging. The next three products, Paraphrases and Meanings, Conceptual Relationships, and Conceptual Relationships Advanced, really focus on meaning, helping students improve their comprehension and subsequently their ability to express their ideas accurately. The last product, Leisure Time Language Input, includes an extensive discussion along with a homework sheet. So often I am asked by parents, “What can my son/daughter do at home to improve his/her language skills. I can’t get him/her to read a book.” This product provides the answer to that question. The discussion explains why and how there are many ways children can improve their comprehension other than by reading a novel or textbook, and includes a homework sheet that speech language pathologists, tutors, or teachers can assign to students toward that end.
