(p.122) Chapter 6 Strategies for Effective Reading Onscreen
How We Read Now

Chapter 6 draws upon what we learned in Chapters 4 and 5 to identify effective strategies for onscreen reading, with both single and multiple texts. The chapter begins by emphasizing the importance of determining reading goals, along with thinking about who the reader is, how cost factors in, the importance of active learning, and ways of applying print strategies when reading onscreen. The first set of recommendations is for young children, while the rest of the chapter looks at strategies for school-age readers. In discussing use of single texts, we consider such issues as genre, complexity, scrolling, priming a reading mindset, annotation, and concept maps. The section on reading multiple texts includes the challenge of recognizing online fake news and the potential to use skills developed when scrutinizing online documents to advance the larger civic good.

Keywords:   active learning, annotation, both/and, civic good, concept maps, fake news, goals, mindset, school-age readers, young children
