What makes a skilled reader?

One might ask: what makes a skilled reader? In brief, skilled readers have a purpose for reading. At times, this purpose is for entertainment value. At other times, this purpose is to obtain information. Regardless of the purpose, good readers are constantly thinking about what they are reading. As their brain processes the words, it works just as hard to attach meaning and understanding to this complicated process known as comprehension. Some students have an innate ability to simultaneously read and process the contents of what they read with little to no assistance; meanwhile, there are some students that benefit directly from instructional strategies.  Click the links below for great reading comprehension material.
