Description

This comprehensive guide offers a framework for using read-aloud and other oral language experiences to build reading comprehension skills and help students record, share, value, and interpret ideas. These organizational tools free students to listen more attentively; organize their responses; and watch for subtle clues, such as body language, that are an important part of listening. The book is organized around common reading strategies, including making inferences and predictions, making connections, visualizing, asking questions, and synthesizing. Tools to complement these strategies include reproducible graphic organizers, rubrics, forms for recording student progress, and numerous worksheets.
