Inferring, questioning, determining importance. It's not easy to explain these abstract reading strategies to elementary readers, yet knowing how they work and how to use them is an important first step to connecting with texts. Fortunately Tanny McGregor has developed visual, tangible, everyday lessons that make abstract thinking concrete and that can help every child in your classroom make more effective use of reading comprehension strategies. Comprehension Connections is a guide to developing children's ability to fully understand texts by making the comprehension process achievable, accessible, and incremental. McGregor's approach sequences stages of learning for each strategy that take students from a fun object lesson to a nuanced and lasting understanding. Her lessons build bridges between the concrete and the abstract by incorporating writing, discussion, song, art, and movement into a web of creative connections that reinforce each strategy on a variety of levels. All the while Comprehension Connections offers an inside look at the dynamic of McGregor's teaching, showing you how her ideas look in action, and including the language she uses and that she encourages her students to use as they build their facility with: schema inferring questioning determining importance visualizing synthesizing. Many students struggle to understand what it is they are supposed to do as they learn to read strategically. Help them make connections to the ideas behind reading and watch as your readers go deeper into texts than ever before.

Ο γάµος της Τζόντι και του Τοντ βρίσκεται σε κρίσιµη στιγµή. Πολλά διακυβεύονται, συµπεριλαµβανοµένης της άνετης ζωής τους στο πανέµορφο διαµέρισµα στο Σικάγο δίπλα στο νερό, καθώς εκείνη και εκείνος προχωρούν µε ιλιγγιώδη ταχύτητα προς το κεντρικό γεγονός. Εκείνος ζει διπλή ζωή. Εκείνη ζει και αναπνέει την άρνηση. Εκείνος αποφασίζει να φύγει. Εκείνη δεν έχει τίποτα πια να χάσει.Μέσα από την εναλλαγή των φωνών, η Σιωπηλή σύζυγος µιλάει για έναν γάµο που διαλύεται, για ένα ζευγάρι που οδεύει προς την καταστροφή, για παραχωρήσεις που είναι αδύνατον να γίνουν, για υποσχέσεις που δεν πρόκειται να εκπληρωθούν... «Με την κοµψή και επιδέξια πένα της σκιαγραφεί τα αντιµαχόµενα ψυχολογικά πορτρέτα δύο εραστών που µετατρέπονται σε υποτιθέµενο δολοφόνο και άτυχο θύµα, σε µια ιστορία που κανείς δεν πρόκειται να ξεχάσει σύντοµα. Δεν µπορούσα να αφήσω το βιβλίο από τα χέρια µου». Elizabeth George «Το ανατριχιαστικό πορτρέτο µιας σχέσης που πήγε τροµερά λάθος. Μια ιστορία που κόβει την ανάσα και που θα σας κρατήσει πάνω από το βιβλίο µέχρι πολύ αργά τη νύχτα, ξάγρυπνους για πολλή ώρα ακόµα κι όταν φτάσετε στην τελευταία σελίδα». New York Times «Η ανάγνωση της Σιωπηλής συζύγου είναι µια αµαρτωλή απόλαυση!» Kate Atkinson «Σαν µικροσκοπική ρωγµή στο γυαλί του πεπρωµένου, η Σιωπηλή σύζυγος εξετάζει την έσχατη συντριβή ενός απολύτως πολιτισµένου γάµου. Έντονη, σαγηνευτική και απολύτως συναρπαστική, η πένα της Harrison προκαλεί τους χαρακτήρες της να ξεπεράσουν τα όριά τους και να βγουν σε έναν κόσµο όπου τα πάντα είναι πιθανά, ακόµη και ο φόνος». Elizabeth Brundage «ΥΠΕΡΟΧΟ… Καλύτερο από το Gone Girl της Gillian Flynn». Sophie Hannah

The question I grappled with was how to move students from "couch-potato" readers who can answer basic questions with one word-to readers who think while reading-to readers who think beyond their reading. -Aimee Buckner In Notebook Know-How, Aimee Buckner demonstrated the power of notebooks to spark and capture students' ideas in the writing workshop. In Notebook Connections, she turns her focus to the reading workshop, showing how to transform those "couch-potato" readers into deep thinkers. Buckner's fourth-grade students use reader's notebooks as a place to document their thinking and growth, to support their thinking for group discussions, and to explore their own ideas about a text without every entry being judged as evidence of their reading progress. Buckner describes her model as flexible enough for students to respond in a variety of ways yet structured enough to provide explicit instruction. Notebook Connections leads teachers through the process of launching, developing, and fine-tuning a reader's notebook program. Teacher-guided lessons in every chapter help students create anchor texts for their notebooks using various comprehension and writing strategies. As students become more proficient, they grow more independent in their thinking and responses and will begin to select the strategies that work best for them. In the process, the notebook becomes a bridge that helps students make connections between ideas, texts, strategies, and their work as readers and writers. Notebook Connections, filled with lesson ideas and assessment tips, provides a comprehensive model for making reader's notebooks the centerpiece of your reading workshop.
