Diane Lapp, Douglas Fisher, "Essential Readings on Comprehension"
2009 | ISBN-10: 0872078078 | 168 pages | PDF | 3 MB

The goal of reading instruction is to help learners become active, critical readers with skills and dispositions to understand a range of text types. Here, in one convenient collection, you'll find outstanding articles grounded in research and full of instructional suggestions to help you meet this goal.

Compiled and introduced by noted experts Diane Lapp and Douglas Fisher, the book opens with their overview of comprehension research. The 15 articles included in the collection, written by leaders in comprehension research and practice and drawn from IRA journals, are grouped to address these questions:

-How important is background knowledge?
-What cognitive strategies do readers use to support their comprehension?
-What instructional routines can teachers use to support comprehension instruction?
-What might the future hold for comprehension instruction?

Each article is supplemented with Questions for Reflection, and recommendations for additional resources from further readings to online lesson plans to YouTube videos are included.

This book is ideal for use in teacher education or for group or individual professional development. The cornerstone of the IRA Library: Comprehension collection, it can be purchased alone or as part of that cost-saving package.
