Reading for Meaning: How to Build Students' Comprehension, Reasoning, and Problem-Solving Skills

This Strategic Teacher PLC Guide focuses on Reading for Meaning, a reading and reasoning strategy that helps students understand new ideas, make inferences, and support their thinking with evidence. The strategy is designed around research showing that proficient readers apply specific thinking skills in three distinct phases: before reading, during reading, and after reading. Reading for Meaning gives all students the opportunity to practice this three-phase approach by: 
  • Using simple statements to preview and predict before reading.
  • Actively searching for relevant evidence during reading.
  • Reflecting on and synthesizing their learning and thinking after reading.  
This Strategic Teacher PLC Guide takes you and your colleagues on a "guided tour" of the Reading for Meaning strategy, enabling you to:
  • Learn how Reading for Meaning builds reading, reasoning, and problem-solving skills.
  • Experience a model lesson using the Reading for Meaning strategy and learn from sample lessons and planning forms designed by other teachers.
  • Plan a complete Reading for Meaning lesson for your classroom.
  • Reflect deeply on your lesson to refine and expand your use of the strategy.
  • Examine student work at various levels of proficiency and use your findings to plan next steps in building students' reading, thinking, and comprehension skills.
