Overview

Foster children's passion for literature early on.
Sustain that passion with strategies that ensure listening and reading comprehension.
Find out how in this essential guidebook for primary grade teachers.

An expert in the ways young children develop literacy, Gretchen Owocki offers primary teachers just what they need for effective reading comprehension instruction-research-based strategies that enable children to meaningfully connect with text.

Owocki bases her book on comprehension strategies that are known to be used by proficient readers:

  • predicting
  • inferring
  • purpose setting
  • retelling
  • questioning
  • monitoring
  • visualizing
  • connecting
  • deciding what is important
  • evaluating.
She then puts the strategies into context by providing a framework for comprehension instruction that has proven to be successful in a range of instructional settings. Here you will find practical ideas for supporting comprehension through whole-class and small-group instruction, literature circles, partner reading, and independent reading. For further help, Owocki includes graphic organizers, evaluation tools, instructional charts, and plentiful examples of the kinds of language that effective teachers use to engage students in talk about books.

Read Owocki and feel freshly equipped to provide thoughtful comprehension instruction. And see how these practices greatly enrich not only children's literacy learning but also their experiences in and outside school.

Meet the Author

Gretchen Owocki powerfully demonstrates the importance of bringing meaningful instruction to not only traditional reading-instruction topics like comprehension, but also to contemporary issues such as Common Core and RTI. In the bestselling titles The Common Core Reading Book, 6-8; The Common Core Lesson Book, K-5; The Common Core Writing Book, K-5; and The RTI Daily Planning Book, she masterfully breaks down instructional issues and strategies into manageable chunks that help teachers differentiate instruction, meet curricular goals, and improve as practitioners. For more than 15 years, she has helped teachers find researched-based practices that improve learning by letting students experience curriculum as part of their own development. In other Heinemann titles such as Comprehension; Make Way for Literacy; and Time for Literacy Centers, she shares teaching that engages students through authentic, meaningful tasks and challenges them to grow as readers and writers. A professor at Saginaw Valley State University, Gretchen is a Heinemann Professional Development Services provider. ยป Read Gretchen's article "Setting a Course to Maximize the Potential of CCSS" in the Heinemann PD Journal.
