A welcome addition to the content area reading market, this much-needed text helps teachers find ways to show elementary school children the classroom value of what they learn outside of school. Using a social constructionist framework, this prestigious author team includes strategies that the National Reading Panel deemed useful in promoting comprehension, becoming the first and only text that calls attention to evidence-based research and its implications for instruction. Innovative in its 3 R's framework—Remembering—Reflecting—Reconsidering—it will help readers make connections and improve comprehension.
