Description

Product Description

Comprehension is a primary ingredient of reading success—but most educators aren''t taught how to deliver structured comprehension instruction in their classrooms. K–8 teachers will find the guidance they need in this groundbreaking professional resource from Nancy Hennessy, former IDA President and an expert on reading comprehension. Meticulously researched and masterfully organized, this book offers a clear blueprint for understanding the complexities of reading comprehension and delivering high-quality, evidence-based instruction that helps students construct meaning from challenging texts.

Aligned with the science of reading and IDA''s Structured Literacy approach, this book is a must for in-service educators and an ideal supplement to pair with core literacy textbooks. Today''s teachers will get the essential knowledge and practical tools they need to help every student become a proficient reader—and build a strong foundation for school success.

EDUCATORS WILL:

  • Get critical background knowledge. Synthesizing decades of research on reading comprehension, this book provides educators with all the fundamentals they need to teach this key component of reading proficiency.
  • Master the blueprint. Teachers will get a complete framework for organizing instruction, aligned with the language comprehension strands of Scarborough''s Reading Rope. In-depth chapters are devoted to each facet of reading comprehension, including vocabulary, syntax and sentence comprehension, text structures, background knowledge, and levels of understanding and inference.
  • Make it work in the classroom. Educators will find practical guidance and tools for planning their units and lessons, adapting to the needs of individual students, and assessing student progress. (An interactive book study guide makes this book easy to use as a professional development resource.)

PRACTICAL MATERIALS: To help them apply the science of reading comprehension and design high-quality instruction, teachers will get classroom activities, sample lesson plans, and questions that help them reflect on and strengthen their practices. The photocopiable teaching resources, including unit and lesson plan organizers, can be used again and again in the classroom.





Review

"A much-needed resource for any educator . . . provides the reader a deep understanding and practical guide to reflect, plan, and strengthen their instruction to benefit all students."
-- Jena Funck, M.Ed.

As an educator for 40 years in numerous roles, I’m really excited to read and use the contents of this book. It provides a much needed framework (blueprint) to support planning for deep and specific reading comprehension instruction to support students’ learning. The resources included are very helpful. These include opportunities to reflect and plan individually and/ or in a Professional Learning Community or book study as well as numerous tools and templates. I’m currently participating in an interactive book study using this text and loving the sharing and new learning for me!

As a teacher, I was always grappling with teaching reading comprehension. It seemed like an abyss, not sure how to start and what to teach. This book is the course you wished you had in college before you tried to teach kids to read. It takes the theoretical and makes it understandable and practical. It really is a blueprint for teachers to help students succeed.
