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.
