Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This text focuses on a key component of literacy instruction: helping children become thoughtful, independent readers who are able to flexibly use a repertoire of reading strategies for comprehension and word recognition. Presented are research-based explanations and guidelines that culminate in a comprehensive strategy instruction model. Teachers in grades K-8 learn classroom-tested ways to create an effective environment for motivated strategy use, combine explicit comprehension instruction with scaffolded support, and provide opportunities for students to verbalize their cognitive processes. The book is illustrated throughout with clearly presented case studies. Also featured are samples of actual lessons, lists of recommended student texts, and excerpts from teacher journals and portfolios, as well as reproducible learning activities, graphic organizers, and assessment tools.

Synopsis:

This accessible teacher resource and course text shows how to incorporate strategy instruction into the K-8 classroom every day. Cutting-edge theory and research are integrated with practical guidance and reflections from experienced teachers of novice and struggling readers. The book describes the nuts and bolts of creating classroom contexts that foster strategy use, combining explicit comprehension instruction with scaffolded support, and providing opportunities for students to verbalize their thinking. It features reproducible learning activities and planning and assessment tools.
