When does the teaching of comprehension end?

Teaching comprehension doesn’t just stop once the reader has finished their text. The use of questioning, as an example, has been used too many times as a test rather than a tool to develop deeper understanding. While questioning can be used as assessment tool it does not mean that you are teaching comprehension. We need to give explicit instruction, demonstrate and guide whilst the students are practicing and constantly evaluate the students as they learn a variety of different comprehension strategies.
