“Thinking about a reading or writing task that you ask students to complete – what gets in the way?”

Three stages of reading strategy

The Three Stages Of Reading strategy involves teaching students to delve into text. The Before Reading stage provides a scaffold for new concepts and vocabulary, promotes engagement and provides a means for prediction. The second stage, During Reading, allows students to integrate the knowledge and information they bring to the text with ‘new’ information in the text. The last stage, After Reading, allows students to articulate and process their understanding of what they have read and to think critically about the validity of the text.

The above document is an adapted version of the strategy as outlined on the My Read website.
