About this title
For those of us calling for more serious attention to comprehension, especially in the early years of schooling, this book is most welcome. Blachowicz and Ogle have compiled an expansive array of strategies for building comprehension and situated them in an overall literacy program. Their recommendations are grounded in both what good readers do when they read and what good teachers do when they teach. They include numerous examples and artifacts from actual classrooms, as well as frames and formats for use in one's own teaching .
