Phrase Cued Text Generator

Step 1 of 3

Welcome to the Phrase-Cued Text Generator. Phrase-cued texts are a means to train students to recognize the natural pauses that occur between phrases in their reading. Because phrases are units that often encapsulate key ideas, the student’s ability to identify them can enhance comprehension of the text (Rasinski, 1990, 1994).

You can read a full description of the phrase-cued text lesson intervention by clicking here.
