Reading and Mathematics

Question: What can we use from our understanding of comprehension techniques to help students understand reading in mathematics?

> “During guided instruction, make explicit connections between reading and mathematics strategies.”

> “Look at math curriculum to find opportunities to apply reading comprehension techniques to mathematical problem-solving situations.”

> “Work with students to create an anchor chart showing reading-math connections.” P. 475.

Comment: Use the same strategies with reading in other subject areas. The authors say that the key is “making connections” between reading comprehension and reading in other disciplines. RayS.
