Description

Product Description

Since its publication in 2000, Strategies That Work has become an indispensable resource for teachers who want to explicitly teach thinking strategies so that students become engaged, thoughtful, independent readers. In this revised and expanded edition, Stephanie and Anne have added twenty completely new comprehension lessons, extending the scope of the book and exploring the central role that activating background knowledge plays in understanding. Another major addition is the inclusion of a section on content literacy which describes how to apply comprehension strategies flexibly across the curriculum. The new edition is organized around four sections:

Part I highlights what comprehension is and how to teach it, including the principles that guide practice, a review of recent research, and a new section on assessment. A new chapter, Tools for Active Literacy: The Nuts and Bolts of Comprehension Instruction, describes ways to engage students in purposeful talk through interactive read alouds, guided discussion and written response.

Part II contains lessons and practices for teaching comprehension. A new first chapter emphasizes the importance of teaching students to monitor their understanding before focusing on specific strategies. Five lessons on monitoring provide a sound basis for launching comprehension instruction. At the end of each strategy chapter, the authors outline learning goals and ways to assess students'' thinking, sharing examples of student work, and offering suggestions for differentiating instruction.

Part III, Comprehension Across the Curriculum, is new. Comprehension strategies are essential for content-area reading, where information can be challenging, and presented in unfamiliar formats. This section includes chapters on social studies and science reading, topic study research, textbook reading and the genre of test reading.

Part IV shows that kids need books they can sink their teeth into and the updated appendix section recommends a rich diet of fiction and nonfiction, short text, kid''s magazines, websites and journals that will assist teachers as they plan and design comprehension instruction

Through its focus on instruction that is responsive to kids'' interests and learning needs, the first edition of Strategies That Work helped transform comprehension instruction for teachers across the country. For them, this new edition will be a welcome extension of that work. Those coming to it for the first time will find a current and essential resource. When readers use these strategies, they enjoy a more complete, thoughtful reading experience. Engagement is the goal. When kids are engaged in their reading they enhance their understanding, acquire knowledge, and learn from and remember what they read. And best yet, they will want to read more!

Review

" Strategies That Work should be on every English teacher''s bookshelf. It is a reader-friendly text that will help all of us to further engage students in the learning process." - English Journal


"I reviewed my dog-eared copy of the first edition, and I wondered, ''How can they possibly improve this book?'' They did." - Teacher Leaders Network


" Strategies That Work is a ''must-read'' for beginning or veteran teachers, pre-service teachers, reading specialists, administrators, and parents." - Education Review

The book is filled with dozens of sample lessons with varying approaches to teaching reading. Although focused mainly on grades K-6 in content, its application of skills will work well with for reading students of any age. This would be a HELPFUL BOOK FOR HOME-SCHOOLING PARENTS.

This book goes beyond the general information about reading comprehension and gets to the heart of what matters to teachers--strategies and how to teach them. This was required reading for one of my master''s level courses in reading education, but it is far from being a boring textbook.

Strategies That Work seems to have been written to give teachers easy access to a treasure trove of strategies and activities they can utilize in the classroom. It''s broken down into four main parts. Part I: The Foundation of Meaning, Part II: Strategy Lessons, Part III: Comprehension Across the Curriculum, and Part IV: Resources That Support Strategy Instruction (several appendices full of handy resources). More than just course reading, this book will be on my shelf as a well-worn, go-to resource for years to come.

I like to ramble on sometime when I review - but will not here. This is a great book looking at considerations teachers will make when teaching reading/writing. I think that perhaps ideas may not be laid out in recipe like fashion, but if you have experience in the classroom you probably want ideas that you can apply to your teaching scenarios - the book is that !

If I had to recommend one book for someone on teaching reading (and writing) it would be this book.
