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.
