1. What do we mean by comprehension?
Comprehension means understanding what someone says. Comprehension differs from memory. Memory remembers something that happened in the past. Comprehension is knowing how to use the information to solve problems.
2. How does our brain work?
The human brain is made up of billions of nerve cells called neurons. Neurons send messages to each other using chemicals called neurotransmitters. These chemicals pass from neuron to neuron across tiny gaps between them. When these chemicals reach their target, they change the activity of the receiving neuron.
3. Why do we need to understand things?
Understanding helps us learn. We learn best when we have lots of experiences. If we don’t understand, then we won’t remember those experiences. Understanding also helps us make decisions. We can choose to act on our understanding or not.
4. What happens if we don’t understand?
If we don’t understand, we may feel confused or frustrated. Confusion makes it hard for us to think clearly. Frustration makes us angry. Anger makes us want to hurt ourselves or others.
5. How do we know if we understand?
We know we understand when we answer questions correctly. We also know we understand when we try to explain something to someone else.
6. Do children understand things differently than adults?
Children’s brains are still developing. Their brains are still changing throughout childhood. Children often have trouble learning some concepts until around age 5 or 6.
