For students to understand what they read, they need to be taught strategies good readers use. This book looks at how two gifted teachers do just that. Nicole Outsen and Stephanie Yulga cover key strategies—such as making predictions, creating mind pictures, identifying big ideas, and connecting to texts on many levels. Each strategy is explored in depth, with mini-lessons for introducing it and deepening students’ use of it.
