Reading comprehension is the goal of reading. It is the ability to extract meaning from written words. Fluency and vocabulary play an important role in reading comprehension.
Developing comprehension skills can help with acquiring meaning from written words. Summarizing, inferencing, sequencing, comparing and contrasting, drawing conclusions, distinguishing between fact and opionion, relating background knowledge, and identifying the main idea, supporting details, and important facts are all important skills for comprehension. These skills are particularly important for comprehending informational text.
When reading narrative text (a story), identifying the setting, the main characters, the problem in the story, how the problem is solved is necessary for understanding and enjoying narrative text.
