Understanding begins here

“Real understanding takes root when learners merge their thinking with the content by connecting, inferring, questioning, determining importance, synthesizing and reacting to information. Understanding begins here.”

Comprehension and Collaboration, 2009 by Stephanie Harvey and Harvey Daniels

Thinking deeply about what we do and read in class is an important task to ensure that you are understanding. Not only is it a task, it’s a skill! Learn to question what you think about what you read and view. Consider what connections are activated, what you wonder about, and what you visualize.
