Helping teachers move beyond fluency as measured by speed alone, this book focuses on building the skills that students need to read accurately, meaningfully, and expressively—the essential components of reading comprehension. Each concise chapter presents a tried-and-true instructional or assessment strategy and shows how K-12 teachers can apply it in their own classrooms, using a wide variety of engaging texts. Special features include classroom examples, “Your Turn” activities, and 24 reproducible forms, in a large-size format for easy photocopying. Purchasers also get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.
