Visualize and Draw to Increase Comprehension

Improve readers' comprehension with a pair of visualization opportunities. First they listen, eyes closed, as you read a description from Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach, and discuss ideas about what they "see." After you read Shel Silverstein's poem "Sick," pupils draw what they visualized from the text and share with group members to compare/contrast their work.
