Comprehension means understanding
what you read. Some people can
read words faster than they can construct meaning.
Understanding flows from the words that are read and
the mental images
created or awakened by the words. Weak mental images are tied
to poor understanding, low vocabulary, weak sequencing, missing
main idea, little inferencing and poor critical thinking skills.
You can clearly hear when someone reads aloud poorly. Unfortunately,
you hear nothing and you see nothing when an individual has
problems generating mental images to create meaning as they
Mental images construct meaning and
organize thoughts. Think of the meaning of surprise
or anger or joy. Yes, you can define those concepts in words,
but you also SEE expressions and body language that are core
to your understanding.
There is a critical path to teaching
mental imaging, and thus, good comprehension. Critical
path means that there is a specific
order of activities that produce the best results most quickly.
As each activity is completed and the learning verified by
specific behavior, the next most important activity is immediately
introduced. This makes MindPrime's
IdeaChain Program effective quickly.
MindPrime's IdeaChain Program targets
basic understanding and gives students, in
clear bite-size pieces, the skill needed to
understand and remember more of
what they read.
