Take a Look Inside The Comprehension Toolkit by Stephanie Harvey & Anne Goudvis

ToolKitBlogPicAvailable in K-2 and 3-6 sets, The Comprehension Toolkit series provides strategies that work to help students understand, respond to, and learn from nonfiction text, building background knowledge across the curriculum and throughout the year.

This flexible resource can be used for instruction with whole group, small group, and individuals in a variety of settings including reading workshop, guided reading, intervention, ELL support, and summer school.

The Comprehension Toolkit series offers robust instruction to encourage students to develop the reading comprehension skills that lead to lifelong learning. The practices:

  • Deepen students’ comprehension of nonfiction text by focusing on reading, writing, drawing, talking, listening, and investigating.
  • Foster agency and strategic thinking across the curriculumby helping kids navigate informational text and think about what they are reading to learn, understand, and remember it.
  • Provide an alternative to the traditional “assign and correct” curriculum. Research-based explicit instruction follows the gradual release framework: model, guide, and practice.
  • Support teachers to understand comprehension strategy instruction, plan and design lessons, and create ways to assess student growth over time.
