To become truly skilled at reading challenging text, students need to routinely use a set of seven cognitive strategies, or “thinking hats.” In turn, teachers need guidance in developing students’ ability to:
  • Connect prior knowledge to new content
  • Merge the written text with what is inferred
  • Monitor comprehension and clarify misunderstandings
  • Engage with authors, peers, and teachers
  • Search sources to better understand the text
  • Put the ideas in the text into their own words
  • Use visuals to increase comprehension
This quick reference guide helps teachers communicate what should be happening in students’ brains as they read—a must-have for any literacy educator or coach.
