At last there is a practical resource book that answers the questions many teachers have about how to improve student reading comprehension. Teaching Reading Comprehension Strategies is a step-by-step guide based on the latest reading comprehension research and is the result of Sheena's learning journey into research-based practice and her experiences teaching in a real classroom. This book includes information on how to introduce and teach strategies and how they fit into your literacy programme. Each strategy has its own chapter, with: an explanation of the strategy and how it supports comprehension; the language we use when using a strategy; guided and independent student activities that support teaching the strategy. There is also an extensive range of teacher and student-friendly support material, including strategy starter posters, photocopiable masters, bookmarks and certificates. Teaching Reading Comprehension Strategies comes with a CD that provides all photocopy masters and support material in digital format. This book is suitable for primary/elementary teachers and intermediate/middle school teachers.
