Reading comprehension is one of the most difficult skills to build in the classroom and learning how to plan differentiated reading instruction is a common challenge for teachers. In order to help both teachers and students alike, Strategies That Work contains thirty new lessons over three sections, with fully revised chapters that are focused on knowledge-building activities for elementary and middle school classrooms. Part I provides readers with an introduction to the foundation of meaning and the value of reading comprehension. Part II incorporates this foundation into a series of lessons designed to empower teachers with engaging and effective activities for target skills. Finally, Part III explains how teachers can apply these critical thinking skills and strategies to every subject across the curriculum.
