Abstract ―​

This literature review underscores the profound positive impact of context clues on reading comprehension, elucidating their vital role in aiding readers in grasping unfamiliar words or concepts within a text. Educators wield the power to empower students by harnessing context clues to bolster vocabulary acquisition, decoding skills, and overall comprehension of textual materials. Crucially, addressing educational challenges through comprehensive teacher training and curriculum development is imperative to cultivate effective utilization of context clues and enhance literacy outcomes among learners. Moreover, integrating schema theory suggests that activating prior knowledge markedly enhances comprehension, offering educators a potent strategy to further empower students in text comprehension. Recognizing the interactive dynamics of bottom-up and top-down processing is pivotal in nurturing literacy development across diverse skill domains. Embracing these theoretical frameworks has the potential to revolutionize literacy instruction, fostering a profound understanding of textual materials among students. In conclusion, the convergence of context clues, teacher training, curriculum development, schema theory, and adept processing strategies holds immense promise in significantly elevating reading comprehension and literacy outcomes for students.
