Teaching Comprehension Strategies

Metacognitive strategies

Teaching metacognitive strategies is a contemporary blackline master series that methodically and creatively teaches students the skills and strategies needed for effective comprehension.

These strategies have been defined as:

  • understanding words;
  • finding information;
  • identifying the main idea;
  • sequencing;
  • comparing;
  • predicting;
  • concluding;
  • summarising;
  • inferring;
  • cause and effect;
  • fact or opinion; and
  • point of view.


  • original and varied texts, customised to suit the strategy being highlighted
  • skills and strategies specifically taught using explicitly modelled as well as supported examples and activities
  • a student ‘test’ page, where students apply the particular strategy being taught – suitable for assessment purposes
  • background notes and information for each strategy, to assist the teacher and to give the activities the widest possible application
  • answers where necessary
  • A high-interest series that doesn’t just talk about comprehension, it teaches it!
