Description

Reading for Understanding is based on the breakthrough Academic Literacy program piloted in the San Francisco schools. In this program, low-performing ninth graders raised their average reading scores by more than two grade levels in just seven months. The book shows teachers how to set up classroom apprenticeship practices that help students build skills in reading comprehension, in deciphering texts, and in relating what they’re reading to the larger world. Reading for Understanding contains a proven classroom strategy for quickly boosting the reading skills of low-achieving middle and high school students.
