Readers Writing: Strategy Lessons for Responding to Narrative and Informational Text
208 pages • 7½ x 9¼
Discover simple lessons that show teachers how students at all levels of ability can use readers' notebooks to think critically and independently, one step at a time. Each of these lessons uses a fiction or nonfiction book to address a comprehension strategy—questioning, connecting, analyzing, synthesizing, evaluating, visualizing, or monitoring—and shows students one specific way they can write about their thinking. You will also find suggestions for supporting student independence, managing independent writing time, scaffolding nonfiction texts, and assessing and conferencing with readers' notebooks.
