Making meaning of what we read is one of the key aspects of literacy, however it's also the one that ends up with the least and very often, uninformed attention in classrooms. As aptly summarized in the introductory write-up, Comprehension in fact, is a complex set of processes that take place collaboratively or simultaneously, and assist the reader meaning-making. Starting with introducing the readers to the concept of Comprehension, the pieces included in the resource book go on to discuss comprehension instruction and related concerns, as well as various strategies one can use in classroom."...every act of reading words implies a previous reading (understanding) of the world and subsequent rereading (through new experiences) of the world. "- Freire, 1985.
