Revisit, reflect, retell: strategies for improving reading comprehension
How can we be certain that students are making sense of print? What can we do to improve comprehension? Linda Hoyt, a reading specialist and staff developer, is convinced that thoughtful reflection and retelling are the keys. When readers reflect upon and retell what they know about a text, they experience deeper levels of understanding and increased communicative competency.
This highly practical collection of more than 130 strategies and 90 reproducibles is the perfect resource for any teacher attempting to evoke high-quality responses to literature. It provides a detailed look at "why" to respond to text, "when" to respond to text, and "how" readers might be invited to respond in authentic ways. All of the strategies are classroom tested, and the blackline masters offer powerful incentives for creative interactions.
Each chapter is loaded with assessment tools for teachers, student self-reflection forms, observation guides, and parent activities that are ready for immediate use. You and your students will laugh together in Game Show, explore graphophonic understandings through Alphaboxes and AlphaAntics, engage in inferential reasoning with V.I.P., and stretch your understanding with Interactive Journals.
"Revisit, Reflect, Retell" is firmly grounded in constructivist reading theory, offering support across a range of genres and learning styles. Teachers will find it a valuable resource for creating meaningful and authentic learning experiences. The book will be equally useful as a workshop manual, discussion starter for teacher study groups, and support for staff developers.
