Effective readers

It is in the moment of reading that good readers make critical decisions, so that they acquire a clear understanding of the text as they read. Some weaker comprehenders can answer inferential questions in conversation after a text. But they often fail to generate inferences in the moment of reading (during the first read). The challenge is to help these reader be more active in the moment of reading.
