“We teach the reader, not just the reading. We want children to be lifelong learners who read actively and independently across the curriculum, who engage their minds and understand what they read. The Toolkit lessons and practices teach kids to use comprehension strategies to ‘read to learn’ as they encounter information and ideas in a wide variety of nonfiction texts.”
—Stephanie Harvey & Anne Goudvis
I have posted my thoughts and posters to go along with books 1 – 5 of the Comprehension Toolkit.
They are all available for free at my TPT store.
Now I am sharing the last books posters. Book 6, Summarize and Synthesize, presents the most sophisticated and the most important thinking strategies. It is so important for the students to be able to take their new learning with them and use it beyond the text.
You should consider using the Comprehension Toolkit in your classroom. It makes a big difference in the conversations the students have about their reading and in their retention and understanding.
