Key Comprehension

Key Comprehension Routine (Grades 4 – 12):

The Key Comprehension Routine is 
based on Joan Sedita’s published curriculum. It is a combination of reading, writing, and study skills strategies that help students understand and learn content information. This two day workshop teaches comprehension instruction through identifying main idea, determining text structure, and engaging in activities that incorporate topic webs, two column-notes, and summarizing. The routine helps provide effective comprehension strategy instruction using existing content material. Through direct instruction, modeling, and classroom practice, the goal is independent application of comprehension strategies.

Key Comprehension Routine (Primary Grades):

This is the primary version of the original Key Comprehension Routine. It introduces the comprehension strategy routine as described above to younger students through oral language, read alouds, and categorization, as well as written text.
