Publisher Comments:

Why has comprehension instruction become so complex?

Sharon Taberski cuts through the pressurized, strategy-overloaded, fluency-crazed atmosphere surrounding reading instruction to lay out the reading and writing workshop practices that are most effective in developing readers in the primary grades. She shares the daily how-tos needed to sustain a literacy block that engages children in authentic reading and writing practices including dozens of effective practices that illustrate amazing ways to organize instructional and independent reading for kids including:

letter and sound searches that improve students' word accuracy and fluency

companion books bags that develop their confidence and comprehension

strategy sheets that make children's thinking about text concrete

a Putting Our Strategies to Work Board that enables students to reflect on and discuss the meta-cognitive strategies they're using

Idea Books and Ta-da Publishing Books that help children get inside the reading and writing process and see how each feeds the other.
