Radically change the way students learn from texts, extending beyond comprehension to critical reasoning and problem solving.

Comprehension proposes a new, comprehensive model of reading instruction that goes beyond teaching skills to fostering engagement and motivation. Using a structured, three-pronged approach―skill, will, and thrill―students learn to experience reading as a purposeful act and embrace struggle as a natural part of the reading process. Instruction occurs in three phases:  

  • Skill - Holistically developing skills and strategies necessary for students to comprehend text.
  • Will - Creating the mindsets, motivations, and habits necessary to engage fully with texts.
  • Thrill - Fostering the thrill of comprehension and using the knowledge for something else.
