Using the ABCDE approach to improve reading comprehension, we teach the students how to change the way they read. We teach how to take a note of each and every word so that it can be attended to and it can be recalled as easily as possible. The note taking method allows the student to break down the passage into smaller more manageable concepts. This allows for critical thinking. If the student has a critical problem, the concept, word, or phrase can be reviewed. If the student is struggling, the student can go back to the paragraph and read from the beginning.
There are several ways to improve reading comprehension, one being the ABCDE approach. This system was proposed by John C. McGonigle and Michael R. Tompkins. According to the ABCDE approach, an effective learning process is best conceptualized as an ordered set of steps. These steps are A, B, C, D, and E. These steps are: Attention, Background, Cognitive Development, Elaboration, and Evaluation. The steps themselves are not set in stone, however, and can be adjusted for the students learning style. The ABCDE approach provides focused instruction on how to improve reading comprehension through the five steps.
This understanding of comprehension helps the students to understand how a passage is written. Students also learn to use a variety of tools to learn, including note taking. Students learn how to use Reading Guides as a way to open up a passage, and learn how to use dictionaries to look up unfamiliar words. Students also learn how to teach each other, and learn how to explain the passage to others. This understanding of how to read critically is a foundation of an AP Scholar.
Research also shows that if students are taught to read at a rate of one word per second, they have a better grasp of the language. If they are taught to read at a rate of one or two words per second, they have less comprehension. 
When we look at the four main learning styles we can see that each of the styles is used in different ways in different types of situations. For example, an auditory learner can be effective in situations where they are expected to hear information and repeat it. They can also be effective when they are asked to watch a video clip, listen to an audio book, or read a textbook. 
Response to Intervention (RTI) is an approach to reading instruction that provides a systematic framework for responding to the needs of the students. It was developed by researchers at the University of Texas, Austin. In general, the goal of RTI is to help teachers identify students who need more instruction and provide individualized instruction for them in order to improve learning. RTI has been found to be helpful in improving grade level achievement. 827ec27edc
