Comprehension strategies

This chapter brought up many good points on the importance of teaching comprehension strategies to students. Without comprehension skills, decoding and fluency mean nothing. Being able to read the words without picking up the meaning defeats the purpose of reading at all. Until a student comprehends what they read, they are not learning from the material they read. This is a chapter I would like to refer back to while I am teaching literacy.
In my current classroom I have noticed that the majority of the students have decent fluency and comprehension skills. I would like to know more about how they were taught, and how students in general learn to go from decoding to comprehension.
