LC Module: Readscans

“The student who systematically previews the contents of a chapter before reading it increases comprehension—by creating a mental map of its contents, activating prior knowledge about the topic, and actively forming predictions about what he or she is about to read.” (Wright, n.d.)
"Most importantly, comprehension is much more difficult if prior knowledge is not activated before reading a passage.” (www.learningpt.org, 2014)
