    This is very good article with lots of useful ideas and practical strategies to teach students how to visualise text and to gain a deeper understanding of what they are reading. Students need to be explicitedly taught on how to visualise using the senses and then practise this. Decoding and understanding text at the same time is a skill that needs to be taught and practised in many different ways.
