A reading grid or grid for reading is list of critera used to summarize the main ideas and supporting details covered in a text. Criteria depend on text genre and use context. E.g. a grid could be made to help pupils understand the structure and the contents of a fairy tale. Another could exist to help journalism students study/understand crime reports. Those reading grids should be adapted to the learner's cognitive level.
Grid for reading also can mean the way in which users scan a text or a webpage. E.g. observation one could make with eye-tracing software.
