Improving Reading Comprehension.

Develop a broad background. Broaden your background knowledge by reading newspapers, magazines and books. Become interested in world events.

Create motivation and interest.Preview material, ask questions, discuss ideas with classmates. The stronger your interest, the greater your comprehension.

Pay attention to supporting cues.Study pictures, graphs and headings. Read the first and last paragraph in a chapter, or the first sentence in each section.

Highlight, summarize and review.Just reading a book once is not enough. To develop a deeper understanding, you have to highlight, summarize and review important ideas.
