Featuring practical instructional routines that are clearly linked to cognitive strategies students need to make sense of text, this book combines a rationale written from the perspective of current research that supports the use of the strategy or instructional routine with clear step-by-step directions and multiple examples from the classroom experiences of teachers across the United States. These experiences appear as boxed features that are easily identifiable by the reader. The text is written in such a way that readers may start on page one and work through the end of the book or use the book as a reference for their own practice or as an inservice tool. Each cognitive strategy is linked via convenient matrices to the instructional routines that promote precision thinking on the part of students.
