Synopsis

"Reading Power" promotes reading comprehension with a wealth of effective strategies that help pupils to think as they read. Teachers will learn how to engage their classes and create powerful opportunities for a more interactive, thoughtful reading experience that improves comprehension. Built around the strategies that proficient readers use - or 'reading powers' - the book recognises that teachers implement strategies from many sources and offers simple applications that can be incorporated in any classroom.The practical and useful book is organised around five reading strategies - Connecting, Questioning, Visualising, Drawing Inference, and Transforming. Each chapter includes: a song or chant to use in the classroom for each strategy; suggestions for introducing each reading strategy; sequential lessons that incorporate teacher modelling, guided practice, and independent reading; and ready-to-copy pages that support the sequential lessons; as well as references to appropriate children's literature and the author includes ideas for modelling demonstrations, encouraging practice, and nurturing independent reading.Extensive lists of children's books, organised around reading ability and age, with suggestions for assembling classroom book collections, are an important part of this practical book.
