Comprehension

Pulling meaning from the words we read in books, magazines, newspapers, street signs or cereal boxes is primary goal of reading. It's what connects us to the world around us. That's why all reading instruction eventually shifts from "learning to read" to "reading to learn." The emphasis is placed on understanding the meaning of the words and the text, which is heavily dependent on concept imagery (the ability to mentally generate a pictorial representation of information). At Acelin Learning Solutions, we develop students' concept imagery skills, thereby enabling them to understand what they read. With practice, students will not only have good comprehension skills, but also a sound development of higher order thinking skills like making inferences and drawing conclusions.
