Cognitive Domain: Content Area Reading Strategies

  • Beverly J. Hearn

Three reading strategies are presented in this chapter. Concept mapping is used to help students recognize how supporting details relate to teach other and to the main idea. Question Answer Relationship, QAR, supports comprehension with a model for questioning which moves from literal understanding, to interpretation, to inferential comprehension, and finally to application of the content. The third reading strategy, SPAWN, moves the student beyond the text to more flexible and creative thinking by manipulating aspects of the content to synthesize new possible scenarios.
