Reading comprehensions are seen as pretty 'old-school' these days: but they can be a straight-forward way to expose students to new ideas and their answers to the comprehension questions are a simple and direct way to assess understanding. We hope this simple resource will develop literacy skills in students whilst introducing the most important ideas relating to metacognition and self-regulated learning to them.
Most of the comprehension worksheets also include personal reflection questions which will help students to connect the reading to their own situations so that they can evaluate and regulate their own learning-processes more effectively.
All files are in .doc (Word) format and are black & white, A4, single-sided worksheets.
