Become your own doctor

No, I don’t recommend this for your physical health (although I do admit to being a tad compulsive about researching meds and diastethoscopegnoses), but I definitely recommend it when it comes to your reading.

Dr. Goodreader can help you comprehend what you are reading–be it “Cat in the Hat” or quantum physics. Learn to diagnose your reading “clunks” and help students self-diagnose as well.

If you are a good reader, you are probably automatically doing these things, but some students must be explicitly taught each reading strategy and when to use it. It’s actually pretty easy. Just click on the Dr. Goodreader¬†diagnosis chart, for a start.¬† Dr_ Goodreader’s Diagnosis Chart
