I appreciate the help to make the 'Quiet Reading' more interactive. 'Independent Reading' now has a real place in my classroom much to my students' benefit. Love this book!
(I'll be using it in Shanghai next fall in my ESL classes.. Looking forward to seeing the activities at work in another country.)
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Based on four critical teaching elements; Word Skills, Taxonomy of Thinking, Text Elements, and Reading Comprehension Strategies, the author Lisa Donahue designed meaningful graphic organization tools. The "8 boxes" incorporate all reading strategies with the ability to diferentiate to student needs requiring accountability through written responses. The book offers various templates to use with detailed explanations and grading rubrics for student expectations. I recommend this book as a tool that targets students individual needs at all levels in learning.
