        I think that it is the most important because if someone is reading something and they don't understand it what is the point of reading it?? Comprehension is the point of reading and should... more

      I agree with your statements. I guess I have not really thought of it in the ways the article broke it down. It really helped my comprehension about the importance of each and how to determine... more
