Connecting Comprehension and Content: A Visual Podcast with Anne Goudvis and Stephanie Harvey

Toolkit Civil War Social 4

Anne Goudvis and Stephanie Harvey have created the Short Nonfiction for American History Series in order to embed reading and thinking strategies into social studies and history instruction, so that comprehension and thinking strategies become tools for learning and understanding content. Throughout the series, Anne and Stephanie show that teaching historical literacy means merging thoughtful, foundational literacy practices with challenging, engaging resources to immerse students in historical ways of thinking.

In the following "visual podcast", the authors give an overview of the entire Short Nonfiction for American History series and address how, with the lessons and unique resources they provide in each book, students can build strong historical background knowledge, deepen comprehension and literacy skills, and strengthen their critical thinking capabilities. 

Close reading is thinking-intensive reading and to comprehend history text filled with complex ideas and unfamiliar information, readers need a quiver full of strategies. These books help you connect kids to the content you love through literacy strategies that apply to reading to learn in history. -- Anne Goudvis and Stephanie Harvey
