The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Readers

Mills, Kathy A. (2008) The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Readers. In Stories, Places, Spaces: Literacy and Identity, National conference by the Australian Literacy Educators' Association (ALEA) and Australian Association for the Teaching of English, July 6th-9th, 2008, Adelaide, SA.

Abstract

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.

Impact and interest:

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
