Comprehension Practice Issue Date: 04-24-2016

Cool Spots imageThe Jefferson Lab’s Reading Comprehension Passages, education.jlab.org/reading/index.html, is a great resource if you want to improve your reading skills. Your understanding of reading material can be enhanced by creating a mental picture of what the words are trying to say. If you are reading about Parts of a Plant, determining what is required to grow plants will involve thinking about the ones you may have seen in a garden and what they need to survive. For example, do they need shelter or do they live outside? Choose a passage that interests you and see if you can select the missing words based on the context.
