Retelling

“Although retelling is one level of comprehension, it does not explore deeper understanding.  Once children are fluently reading with a literal level of comprehension, it is appropriate to prompt for higher-level thinking and inferencing. The chapter on fluent guided reading provides numerous strategies for improving comprehension” (Richardson, J.  2009. Next Step in Guided Reading, p. 47).
