## Literacy Strategies

Explicit strategy instruction is at the core of good comprehension instruction. "

Teachers should help students to understand why a strategy is useful, how it is used, and when it is appropriate. Teacher demonstration and modeling are critical factors for success, and student discussion following strategy instruction is also helpful. Depending on how you incorporate/utilize these strategies depends greatly on what reading skill you are addressing – many of them can be adapted to meet all of the standards.
