Comprehension Going Forward

Daniels, H. (Ed.). (2011). Comprehension going forward. Portsmouth, NH: Heinemann.

Various authors discuss their thoughts on the next steps for reading comprehension instruction in this narrative book.  You will not find studies here but you will explore new ways to assess how deeply students understood a text.  The book may make you consider taking that scaffolding away sooner
and adding more focus to independent reading.  Many updated strategies for teaching and learning about comprehension are laid out in an easy to read way.  Lots of great ideas for getting students engaged in text.
