Welcome to our toolbox of strategies to teach literacy. To return to the literacy toolbox homepage, click here.

These strategies have been organized into six categories:

  1. Pre-Reading: Text Selection – Ability to identify appropriate texts.
  2. Pre-Reading: Planning the Reading – Ability to identify what you will need to learn throughout the active reading process.
  3. Active Reading: Annotation/ Note-taking – Ability to write comments, explanatory notes, and key findings about a text in a systematic way.
  4. Active Reading: Essential Vocabulary — Ability to identify and master terms essential to understanding a text.
  5. Post-reading: Enhancing comprehension — Ability to identify the central point and main supporting elements of a text.
  6. Post-reading: Academic Integrity — Ability to use and credit sources appropriately
