The Comprehension Toolkit
Harvey, Stephanie; Goudvis, Anne
"The Comprehension Toolkit" focuses on reading, writing, talking, listening, and investigating, to deepen understanding of nonfiction texts. With a focus on strategic thinking, this toolkit's lessons provide a foundation for developing independent readers and learners. It also provides an alternative to the traditional assign and correct curriculum. Instead, the teaching and learning focus is on strategic thinking and explicit instruction via modeling, practice and application. This toolkit is designed to help kids negotiate informational text, to think about what they are reading, and to hold that thinking so that they understand, remember, and use it. This toolkit is designed for teachers teaching grade levels 3-6 and includes: (1) Six Strategic Cluster Books; (2) a Teacher's Guide; (3) an Extension Book; (4) a Source Book of Short Text; and (5) a CD-ROM.
