Chalk Talk: Prompting Students for Comprehension
Quality reading assessments not only evaluate students’ fluency and accuracy but also their comprehension of the text. Students are often asked to “retell” a story in their own words, but sometimes—especially for younger or struggling readers—teachers need to prompt students in order to gauge their comprehension. When prompting a student to retell a story, a teacher may ask him/her to explain the story—in his/her own words—to a friend or family member or to someone who has not read it. A teacher may ask a student about key ideas in a text, asking what the author is telling the readers, to describe the main points or most important parts, etc. Sequence may be focused on to ask the student what he/she learned first, next, and after that. If vocabulary is important, a student may be asked about any important or special words the author uses. In a text that uses textual features, such as charts, graphs, pictures, maps, a teacher may prompt students to ask why these are important to the story, what information they tell the reader, and what they learned.
