Developing Reading ComprehensionEffective Instruction for All Students in PreK-2
by Katherine A Dougherty Stahl and Georgia Earnest García

Early literacy instruction typically emphasises foundational skills - often at the expense of engaging young children in reading and supporting their comprehension of different types of texts. This book explains the essential elements of comprehension and shares a wealth of classroom-tested instructional practices. It presents developmentally informed strategies for scaffolding comprehension skills, using content to promote engagement, and implementing high-level discussions and writing tasks. Ways to teach and assess English learners and other diverse students are highlighted throughout. The book features explicit links to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) as well as helpful reproducible forms. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials in a convenient 8-1/2’‘ x 11’‘ size.
