Engaging the Adolescent Learner

Reading and Reasoning:
Fostering Comprehension Across Multiple Texts

Douglas Fisher & Nancy Frey


Fisher and Frey discuss the unique characteristics of reading and writing across multiple texts and instructional approaches that support comprehension. They explain how summarizing, teaching causal relationships, and argument writing can engage and deepen secondary students’ complex thinking when comparing multiple texts and media, helping students acquire qualitative skills required in college and beyond.
