  • Great Readers See Themselves as Readers

  • Great Readers Read to Learn
  • Great Readers Monitor and Organize What They Read
  • Great Readers Are Critical

 

 

Responses from the Field

The authors have “nailed” it as far as the chapter topics capturing important issues in comprehension development go.  The order of topics is spot-on developmentally.  I am in awe of the skill the authors showed in integrating and operationalizing so many of the comprehension techniques and strategies that teachers are taught all through their coursework.

Barbara Pettegrew, Otterbein College

 

I would consider this one of the best user-friendly approaches to critical literacy that I have seen.
