COVID-19 Reading Comprehension Guidance: Tips for Parents and Caregivers
This resource provides tips and guidance for parents and caregivers to foster reading comprehension skills at home. The guidance is intended to be adapted by education practitioners into a format that would be relevant for parents/caregivers in a given context. The resource includes names of the particular reading comprehension strategies in this version for practitioners, but these may be simplified or eliminated in the version used by parents.
This guidance should be adapted to the needs of the context, which may include but is not limited to:
- Translating and (possibly) simplifying the language and/or reducing the number of examples
- Adding illustrations and/or changing the format to be more parent-friendly
- Converting the essence of the guidance into short audio skits that could be played over the radio and/or distributed via SMS
