Back up and Reread is a valuable strategy to restore comprehension when meaning has broken down.

Using a picture book, Christie models her thinking aloud after every two-page spread, quickly answering the "who" and "what" before moving on (Check for Understanding). Because she is monitoring her own reading so closely, she is quickly aware of confusion when it arises. She shows the girls how she goes back, and sometimes back a bit more, rereading and thinking until her understanding gets back on track.
