They show student viewers how to use these strategies when reading fiction, nonfiction, or everyday text. They also model real-life applications of the strategies. Episode titles include "Prior Knowledge," "Making Connections," and "Questioning." Teacher guides show teachers demonstrating how they are using the reading comprehension strategies effectively with their students. They combine actual classroom footage with dialogue and personal reflection on instructional practices.
