Stepping Stone Process for Reading Comprehension Strategies

Ok Blogging Friends - I know I've been absent for a while - but finding out I am having twins has completely overtaken my world.  I haven't left you all - I promise.  I actually need your help!  I have compiled a list of all of the reading strategies I could think of.  I am wanting to put them into a list.  This list needs to almost like a stepping stone list, meaning the strategies at the beginning of the list are the foundation strategies that students need to know at the beginning.  The next few strategies would be what the students should learn next, and the last strategies would be the most challenging that the students would learn after the beginning and middle ones have been mastered.  I'm very interested in what your thoughts are for this list.  How would you list them from foundation strategies to higher comprehension strategies??  Think about which strategies the students would need to know/do before they could do the others.  I have a meeting soon and would really like some input.  I'm offering one free item from my TPT store for anyone who'd be willing to help me.  The list I have is below (NOT IN ANY ORDER)




(These strategies are not in any order)
story elements
making predictions
making connections
activating prior knowledge
questioning
cause/effect
inferring
main idea/details
summarizing
determining importance
visualizing
sequencing
retelling
author's purpose
compare/contrast
nonfiction text features
context clues
draw conclusions
(If I've forgotten any - please add them to your list!)

Please respond and let me know your thoughts.  I'll respond back and ask which item you'd like!  Thanks for your help.  I truly appreciate the input!
