Reading comprehension -- Study and teaching (Elementary);
The heart of reading instruction is comprehension. Today, reading is no longer considered a passive activity, but rather an activity that demands active engagement in the search for meaning. "Comprehension occurs when the reader extracts meaning from the written text rather than when he merely names the words in the text" (Lapp & Flood, 1 984, p. 274). Successful readers are actively involved in the comprehension process. They select and use a variety of reading strategies before they read, while they read, and after they read to help them construct meaning.
