102 Reading Response Lessons
Improving Comprehension Skills for Test Day--and Beyond



February 2006 | 312 pages | Corwin
Faced with the daunting task of helping her students raise their reading comprehension scores, the author developed a process that would help her students dismantle even the most challenging comprehension questions and respond in clear, sophisticated paragraphs.

Using the author's 5-step process (a process that requires 30 minutes twice a week), teachers will help their students improve their critical literacy skills for standardized tests-and for their futures.
