Reading comprehension is more often assessed than taught. Research demonstrates that powerful metacognitive strategies can be taught to help students monitor and improve their own comprehension. This paper provides a repertoire of essential thinking strategies for teaching reading comprehension with students in the primary and middle years, with practical classroom activities. Special attention is given to multimodal reading comprehension and critical literacy for the new times.
