Ask the right questions.
"It is not the answer that enlightens, but the question.” ~ Eugene Ionesco
Students spend the first four years of school learning to read. They should spend the rest of their lives reading to learn. But they can’t learn from texts if they lack the skills needed for deep and meaningful comprehension. Our education system dedicates those critical first years of school to developing phonological awareness skills so students can recognize the words in texts. We must provide the same kind of skill-building focus on comprehension so students truly understand what they’re reading.
