Reading Strategies
Readers sort and organize information from a selection. Classifying ideas aids comprehension. Instruction focuses on helping students identify similar or distinct attributes to classify information.

Questions that help students classify or categorize information:

  • How are these ideas alike? How are the ideas different?
  • Which ideas belong together?
  • How are the ideas related?
  • How would you group the facts from the selection?
