Included are 24 reading comprehension skills and strategies posters. Each poster has the name of the strategy, prompts that you might ask students, a sample graphic organizer, and sample student responses with sentence frames (when applicable). These are awesome posters that develop the comprehension skill / strategy as well as give students to the language they need to ask and answer questions using that strategy. A great resource for guided reading / small groups.
