10th September 2013 - Moving on to comprehension with Catch Up® Literacy

Catch Up Blog

Once your learners have progressed through Catch Up® Literacy, reached level 11 or 12 and are making few miscues, then it's time to move on. You might be unsure of what to do next, but have no fear we have some ideas to help you take the next step.

1. Move them on to twice-weekly guided reading sessions where the emphasis is on comprehension.

2. Three or four learners sharing the same text can enjoy reading together and then you can guide them to explore beyond literal comprehension into inferential comprehension. Questions that really work well are:
-How do you know ….?
-What makes you think …?
-Do you believe xxx when they say …… Why not?

If learners get used to the idea of unpicking the layers of meaning in a text in a small group, then they’ll go on to do that when reading independently. Simple! Think of it like Catch Up® Plus!
