If you read the book in order, you will effectively be following our two-day workshop, but many of the techniques, insights and suggestions are self-standing and can improve your reading, comprehension, memory and retention so feel free to read them in the order which makes most sense to you (there’s a lot of cross-referencing in case you need to check out something which has been presented earlier). But however you approach the book, we strongly suggest that you actually try things out as you go. As we say in the book, reading is just the first step; it’s only useful if you put the information into practice.If you haven’t got time to read the whole book at the moment, then the techniques which will make the biggest immediate difference to your...

Understanding Texts and Readers Book Description :

"Understanding Texts & Readers makes comprehension make sense. In it, Jennifer Serravallo narrows the distance between assessment and instruction. She maps the four fiction and four nonfiction comprehension goals she presented in The Reading Strategies Book to fourteen text levels and shares sample responses that show what to expect from readers at each. Jen begins by untangling the many threads of comprehension: Levels, engagement, stamina, the relevance of texts, and much more. Then level by level she: - calls out with precision how plot and setting, character, vocabulary and figurative language, and themes and ideas change as fiction across levels - specifies how the complexity of main idea, key details, vocabulary, and text features increases in ...

The Threads of Reading Book Description :

How can teachers make sure that all students gain the reading skills they need to be successful in school and in life?
