It's helpful for new teachers. I honestly haven't used it recently, but it's a good resource to have on hand. ( )

Chapter 6 through 11 has many examples of how to teach the inner voice, questioning, using prior knowledge, visualizing and inferring, determining importance of text, and summarizing and synthesizing information. They also give ways to teach reading in science and social studies.
This book is practical and can be used for any grade. ( )

A "must-read" for understanding how readers comprehend and how to teach this. Need to read this in combination with Teaching for Deep Comprehension by Linda Dorn. Also need to read in combination with Ellin Keene's books on comprehension. ( )
