Learners and Comprehension Strategies
Even while you assess your students' needs in terms of building basic skills in phonemic awareness (units of sound) and phonics instruction (sound/letter correspondence), it's possible to build other reading strategies simultaneously to help your readers develop skills.
Developing fluency and building vocabulary will help along the way toward comprehension, the end goal in reading the different types of texts that students encounter.
