Readers sometimes get stuck when they read, not understanding a word or losing the train of thought. The difference between a good and a poor reader is that the good reader realizes that comprehension has broken down, and knows what strategy to use to fix it. Many students do not realize they are not understanding what they read, so teachers must help them become so engaged in the text that when they veer off course, they realize it and immediately know how to correct it.
