Overview

If you have ever wondered how to teach comprehension strategies to primary-age children, read on.

First, imagine a primary-grade classroom where all the children are engaged and motivated; where the buzz of excited, emerging readers fills the air; where simultaneously words are sounded out and connections are made between the books of their choice and the experiences of their lives. Then, open these pages.

Welcome to Debbie Miller's real classroom where real students are learning to love to read, to write, and are together creating a collaborative and caring environment. In this book, Debbie focuses on how best to teach children strategies for comprehending text. She leads the reader through the course of a year showing how her students learn to become thoughtful, independent, and strategic readers. Through explicit instruction, modeling, classroom discussion, and, most important, by gradually releasing responsibility to her students, Debbie provides a model for creating a climate and culture of thinking and learning.

Here you will learn:

  • techniques for modeling thinking;
  • specific examples of modeled strategy lessons for inferring, asking questions, making connections, determining importance in text, creating mental images, and synthesizing information;
  • how to help children make their thinking visible through oral, written, artistic, and dramatic responses to literature;
  • how to successfully develop book clubs as a way for children to share their thinking.

Reading with Meaning shows you how to bring your imagined classroom to life. You will emerge with new tools for teaching comprehension strategies and a firm appreciation that a rigorous classroom can also be nurturing and joyful.

    Miller's text is great for organizing and enhancing a readers' workshop in your classroom.

    As a student working on a degree as a literacy specialist, I found this text to be the best one that I have come across, so far. The writing is clear, precise, and useful. She organizes the information in a way that makes it easy to access, shows the progression one can use for introducing a reading program into the classroom,and clearly states the reasons for doing each activity.
    This is a book that I plan to hold onto, and make part of my professional library. I also think that it would be a useful addition for teachers to have, even if they've been in the classroom for years.

    Changed my life

    This is the best book for teaching reading I have ever read. It not only changed the way I teach and relate to my students, it changed the way I relate to all of the people in my life. A MUST read for all teachers!

    Inspiring read

    This was a very thought-provoking and inspiring book. Debbie recommended teaching metacognition immediately and gave functional examples and techniques. She did not limit the complexity of her vocabulary to which she exposed her students. Some concepts outlined in her book used to increase comprehension were: Using schema, conferring, inferring, mental images, asking questions, and synthesizing. She relied heavily on students writing or drawing to express their full understanding. Most teachers would appreciate the lists of 'tried and true' books for teaching specific concepts at the end of most chapters. Debbie dictated many conversations she has had with her first graders which added to the simplicity of her book. She also gave explicit examples of introductions to her lessons.

    Essential for Novice and Experienced Teachers Alike

    This book provides specific, sequenced lessons to help you build on your students knowledge. Miller suggests many excellent and easy-to-find children's books to use with her lessons. This book is PERFECT for teachers who want to take their students to the next level and provide stimulating, fun, and skill-packed lessons. I used this book with great success in my second grade class - give your students credit and don't be afraid to teach them advanced topics like text to text connections. Buy this book!!!
