BOOK DESCRIPTION

Inferring, questioning, determining importance. It’s not easy to explain these abstract reading strategies to elementary readers, yet knowing how they work and how to use them is an important first step to connecting with texts. Fortunately Tanny McGregor has developed visual, tangible, everyday lessons that make abstract thinking concrete and that can help every child in your classroom make more effective use of reading comprehension strategies.

Comprehension Connections is a guide to developing children’s ability to fully understand texts by making the comprehension process achievable, accessible, and incremental. McGregor’s approach sequences stages of learning for each strategy that take students from a fun object lesson to a nuanced and lasting understanding. Her lessons build bridges between the concrete and the abstract by incorporating writing, discussion, song, art, and movement into a web of creative connections that reinforce each strategy on a variety of levels. All the while Comprehension Connections offers an inside look at the dynamic of McGregor’s teaching, showing you how her ideas look in action, and including the language she uses and that she encourages her students to use as they build their facility with:

  • schema
  • inferring
  • questioning
  • determining importance
  • visualizing
  • synthesizing.

Many students struggle to understand what it is they are supposed to do as they learn to read strategically. Help them make connections to the ideas behind reading and watch as your readers go deeper into texts than ever before.
