If you’re reading Jennifer Serravallo’s The Reading Strategies Book with colleagues, you’ll be elated to know that she wrote a study guide!
The guide contains collaboration suggestions and is organized in much the same way as the book, with tips, appropriate usage settings, procedures, and visuals—all formatted for ease of use. It is our hope that the study guide not only strengthens your strategic reading instruction, but will also strengthen collaboration with your colleagues.
What you’ll get in the study guide:
- A clear, step-by-step process for each procedure
- Notes in the margins on how to adapt the experience for teachers of differing experience levels
- Cross-references to Jen’s other Heinemann books, to help you understand how they fit together.
