Reading for Meaning: How to Build Students' Comprehension, Reasoning, and Problem-Solving Skills (A Strategic Teacher PLC Guide)
Silver, Harvey F.; Morris, Susan C.; Klein, Victor
This guide is intended to make it easier to implement the Reading for Meaning strategy from the ultimate guide to teaching strategies, "The Strategic Teacher". When you and your colleagues want to explore more ways to help students understand what they read, make inferences, and support their thinking with evidence, this book is your ideal tool. Use the sample lessons, student examples, and planning forms with your professional learning community (PLC) to: (1) Understand the thinking skills that students use before, during, and after reading to build deep understanding of their texts; (2) Learn how to use Reading for Meaning statements to pique interest in reading assignments and increase students' analytical powers while reading and learning; (3) Plan a complete Reading for Meaning lesson for your classroom; and (4) Use student work to plan next steps in building their reading, thinking, and comprehension skills. This book is divided into four sections: (1) Why Reading for Meaning?; (2) Planning a Lesson; (3) Evaluating the Lesson; and (4) Learning from Student Work. An introduction, appendix and references are also included. [For "The Strategic Teacher: Selecting the Right Research-Based Strategy for Every Lesson", see ED509113.]
