Making Sense of Text While Reading
Good readers predict what they think will happen in a book. Predicting is different than making a guess. It is based on some kind of knowledge or evidence. Predicting helps readers want to read on to find out if their predictions are correct. Using what readers know from their own lives, or background knowledge, helps them make predictions.
