An ideal supplementary text for preservice special and general educators-and a great resource for inservice teachers looking for new comprehension strategies-this book is the key to understanding what's behind comprehension struggles and which strategies make a real difference for adolescent readers.
Teachers will discover how to improve students' reading comprehension across content areas with specific, evidence-based strategies such as:-
•mnemonics that help students remember and retrieve important information
•graphic organizers that highlight key information and clarify abstract concepts
•peer-mediated strategies that provide more opportunities for direct instruction and repeated practice
•motivational and self-efficacy strategies that encourage deep, focused, and engaged reading
•The Embedded Story Structure Routine, which teaches self-questioning, story structure analysis, and summary writing
•Collaborative Strategic Reading in student-led cooperative learning groups
•technology-based applications such as adapted digital texts, open-source textbooks, educational software, and virtual field trips
•multicomponent interventions such as reciprocal teaching and the SQ3R approach
To help teachers implement these highly effective comprehension strategies across a wide range of content areas, they'll get complete overviews of each strategy and how-to guidance based on recommended practice.
They'll also get charts, graphic organizers, mnemonic strategies, and sample lesson plans they can use in their own classrooms.
With the proven, research-based strategies in this textbook, educators will be fully prepared to improve adolescents' comprehension skills and ensure that all students are confident, motivated readers.
