Guiding Readers Through Text
Strategy Guides for New Times
Karen D. Wood, Diane Lapp, James Flood, and D. Bruce Taylor
You'll find this second edition of IRA's classic invaluable for helping K–12 students build comprehension skills and develop into strategic readers and writers.
Strategy guides support students during reading, helping them attend to significant information, process and think about content, and engage in meaningful discussions throughout the reading experience. Reflecting what is considered “text” in today’s multimedia world, these guides take students into multiple sources of information, bridging print and digital literacies. The book’s question sets, statements, engaging activities, and experiences will build and deepen students’ understanding of topics across all subject areas.
In each chapter, the authors provide procedural descriptions and examples of each guide, as well as “Tips for Diverse Learners.” An appendix of reproducible strategy guides is also included.
