This study was completed to provide the benefits of using comprehension strategies for struggling readers. The strategy that was mainly focused on in this study was using predicting to help enhance the reader’s comprehension. The research was conducted by working with a student one-on-one, using questionnaires, direct instruction, modeling expected behaviors, and allowing the student to complete tasks independently. The finding suggest that using strategies, such as predicting, help students not only gain a better understanding of what they are reading, but help build confidence in their abilities to read.
