"What kind of instruction best supports comprehension? Ask Dorsey Hammond and Denise Nessel, veterans steeped in both research and classroom practice. “Most important,” they assert, “is to promote readers' intellectual and emotional engagement with texts every day through effective thinking and discussion.” The Comprehension Experience explains how to do it K-12 with fresh, research-driven practices. Hammond and Nessel say readers must do more than master skills and learn strategies. They must have highly engaging, deeply satisfying experiences with narrative and informational texts. They must think actively, talk productively, and focus on meaning. Hammond and Nessel show how to do this by: engaging readers' curiosity to draw them into texts using teaching language to stimulate students' thinking leveraging the reading-writing connection to strengthen understanding making comprehension a priority for emerging readers ensuring that instruction leads to effective self-directed reading. To support what they say, Hammond and Nessel provide rich classroom dialogues to illustrate exemplary instruction in action. "--Publisher.
