Comprehension Strategy
Back Up and Reread

There are times when reading text, readers gets to a point where they realizes they do not understand what was just read. Somewhere during the reading, concentration was lost or something did not make sense. When this happens, STOP, back up and reread.

 

Students can use this strategy in any content area and with any genre. When learning to read for comprehension students are taught to answer the W questions. If they are unable to answer "Who," "What," "When," "Where" or "Why," it may be an opportunity to back up and reread.
