Overview

A child may be a great decoder, but that's only one step toward becoming a fluent reader. Reading implies thinking and understanding, and teachers can help children develop strategies for comprehension. Children need to know how to make connections and ask questions, how to visualize and infer, how to extract important ideas and to synthesize information if they are to become fluent readers. Stephanie Harvey and Anne Goudvis show how teachers can model these strategies by thinking aloud and coding the text, lifting text onto the overhead and reasoning through it in class discussions, and bringing in their own books to model how adults use these strategies. All the while teachers give students long blocks of time to practice these strategies independently in their own reading.

Full of practical suggestions to help students think when they read, Strategies That Work gives teachers:

  • more than forty K-8 strategy lessons for understanding text;
  • ways to use short text, such as picture books, newspapers, magazines, and poetry to teach comprehension;
  • ideas for choosing books that promote thinking and discussion;
  • suggestions to better comprehend text in social studies, science, and other content areas;
  • a wide range of authentic response options that promote engagement and enable students to monitor their own comprehension;
  • examples of student work, illustrations, scripts of conversations, and a complete assessment interview to demonstrate and evaluate students' use of strategies.

Key features of Strategies That Work are the Appendixes that include:

  • an authoritative bibliography of content-area text sets on the most common curricular topics in history, science, the arts, and literacy;
  • a list of favorite books teachers choose for introducing and guiding students in the practice of a given strategy;
  • a list of professional journals that review books for classroom use and a list of great young adult magazines;
  • a selection of response options, homework suggestions, and authentic charts arranged by strategy.

Strategies That Work focuses on instruction that is responsive to kids' interests and learning needs. When readers use these strategies while reading, they enjoy a more complete, thoughtful reading experience. Engagement is the goal. When kids are engaged in their reading they enhance their understanding, acquire information, and remember what they read. And best yet, they will want to read more!

    WOW!

    I have a hard time motivating my middle school students, but this book has motivated me to take a different approach with them. Although it encompasses the same comprehension strategies that many other books do, this book actually APPLIED strategies to example lessons. I am excited to teach these strategies in my classroom this fall. Great book!

    Finally, an escape from stifling comprehension exercises!

    English teachers often struggle with the Reading component of our curriculum more than we do with the Writing component. That is because there are often very well defined and structured examples of writing lessons readily available for us. Moreover, most writing can be placed into two clear categories: Expository and Creative. Finally, there are at our disposal innumerable references on style. In other words, most people in our country follow the basic rules of writing, and that¿s, more often than not, all that we are expected to teach. Reading, on the other hand, has been a very nebulous art to teach at best. In any given story, the plot is always up for interpretation by individual students, where exactly the climax is always seems a point of contention, and no one student will glean the same ¿theme,¿ or meaning from the text as another. And informational text, well, that¿s a struggle all in its own. How on earth do we make students care about another culture, another time period, or another discipline? Stephanie Harvey and Anne Goudvis answer that question quite effectively in Strategies That Work: Teaching Comprehension to Enhance Understanding. This is more of a roadmap than a book, as it outlines in a very organized fashion seven very logical strategies that are user friendly to all young and young adult readers. Harvey and Goudvis identify the following strategies that strong readers use to understand reading material: making connections, questioning, visualizing, predicting, making inferences, and synthesizing. Using Post-It notes and response journals, students utilize the above strategies to ¿have a conversation¿ with the reading material, thereby learning it more readily. The beauty of these strategies is that teachers no longer have to teach reading material in a cookie cutter fashion, nor do students need to learn an adult¿s interpretation of a piece of literature alone. Using the tools in this book, teachers can allow students to connect to any types of reading material, whether it be fiction or nonfiction, through their own personal lived experience. Teachers can evaluate students¿ comprehension through individual responses and avoid stifling students with monotony and sameness. I highly recommend Strategies that Work to the teacher who is not afraid to teach the art of reading comprehension in a progressive, non-restrictive fashion.

    These Strategies Really Work!

    Strategies That Work will doubtless be a ready-reference book in my collection--one that stays near the front of the bookshelf and doesn't have a chance to gather dust. As I read it, I constantly thought about how the strategies that are outlined in the book (more than 40 of them) will work in my classroom. Though I am not currently teaching, I relied on my experiences in the classroom countless times as I imagined how well the ideas and suggestions would have worked with former students and will work with future ones. Harvey and Goudvis candidly explain their own experiences in the classroom and convincingly emphasize the need for more explicit strategy instruction in K-8 curriculum. After focusing on 'The Foundation of Meaning' in part one, describing strategic thinking and reading as well as the types of books to use for teaching such strategies, the authors go through strategy by strategy, explaining different lessons to use with each. The strategies emphasized include making connections, questioning, visualizing, inferring, determining importance in text, and synthesizing information. There is a nice balance of skill levels and genres of text, as well as notes about how to assess comprehension--useful information for any teacher. The third section of the book is a collection of appendixes that make the addition of this book to your collection even more imperative. Here you will find lists of books and author sets that are particularly complimentary to the strategies previously depicted. In addition, you will find books classified by content area, adult text sets, magazines and newspapers for children and young adults, and more. With the current debate raging about which is the one best method for teaching decoding, the importance of teaching children to be proficient at comprehending what they read is often set on the back burner. This book offers a welcome answer to that need.
