To help students with comprehension, I have them make predictions about what events might take place in the story based on the title of the chapter. I positively reinforce all predictions given. Once the predictions are made, I give a brief idea of what the chapter is about and ask the children to think about what questions they want answered when they read the chapter. We record these questions on chart paper. This helps to set up a purpose for reading and I've found that students are so in tune to the story that they are better able to answer with more detail and enthusiasm.
