Purpose: To increase comprehension by focusing student learning within a controlled context
Description: Learning frames are a sequence of spaces connected by key language elements to help students focus their learning. The purpose is threefold: 1) to provide a framework to guide students' understanding and responding; 2) to give a structured format to follow for engaging in a writing activity; 3) to help students develop independent comprehension strategies.
