Plumbing his file drawers for 64 of the most effective
comprehension minilessons from his distinguished teaching career,
Serafini has created a teaching treasure trove that contains nearly
a year's worth of comprehension instruction plus an extensive list
of children's literature that he has successfully woven into his
own reading workshop. "Lessons in Comprehension" introduces and
reinforces meaning-making concepts through eight broad thematic
strands that scaffold understanding and responsibility for novice
readers: Inviting Children into the World of Reading and Literature
Exploring the Structures and Components of Literature Navigating
Text Promoting Invested Literature Discussions Developing
Comprehension Practices Investigating Informational Texts Extending
Response to Literature Examining Critical Perspectives.
Within each strand, eight lessons take students deep into key
comprehension strategies like visualization, journaling, and
previewing texts. Tried, proven, and grounded in the latest
scientific-based research, each substantial lesson offers a
complete framework to take you and your students from theory
through guided practice and beyond. And, unique among books on the
reading workshop, each lesson also features Serafini's own
classroom-honed language-the perfect model to adapt for explicit
instruction in any reading classroom. These lessons fit seamlessly
together and provide the instructional backbone for learners of
every level and ability.
"Effective teachers teach," writes Serafini, and in effective
reading workshops explicit instruction provides an important link
between the written word and an emerging reader's ability to both
interact with texts and understand them. Read "Lessons in
Comprehension," trust Serafini, and help your students learn the
strategies they need to comprehend a variety of texts.
