What Does A 4th Grader Look Like While Applying Strategies?



Making Connections/Prior Knowledge Explains how  background   knowledge enriches the interpretation of the text and begins to make   connections beyond life experience and immediate text
Questioning Uses questions to challenge the text related to the author’s   purpose, theme, or point of view
Visualizing/Sensory Imagery Creates and describes multi-sensory images that extend and   enrich the text; and can explain how those images enhance comprehension
Determining Importance Identifies at least one key concept, idea, or theme as   important in overall text meaning and clearly explains why
Monitoring Comprehension Uses more than one strategy to build meaning when   comprehension breaks down; can articulate which strategies are most appropriate   for a given text
Predicting/Inferring Develops predictions, interpretations, and/or conclusions   about the text that include connections between the text and the reader’s   background knowledge or ideas and beliefs
Retelling/Summarizing/Synthesizing Stops frequently to reflect on text meaning; relates to   the story or genre in a personal way; can identify key themes; may articulate   how this process has created new meaning upon completion of text, refers to characters by specific name, and uses vocabulary from text
