Comprehension is a vital tool in learning, especially in reading. Reading without understanding is not reading, because the main goal of reading is to understand what you read...without understanding, a reader is merely barking at a series of symbols. Readers bring in their world knowledge when they read and one of the probable causes of inability to comprehend is the lack of prior knowledge.
