Find out why and how to integrate the “new essentials” of reading—comprehension, vocabulary, and fluency—into primary classrooms in this easy-to-navigate, research-based book. Two literary specialists summarize the latest research on comprehension, vocabulary, and fluency, and then show how the research translates into classroom strategy. They explain how to make sure the instructional contexts already in use in primary classrooms—read alouds, shared reading, and guided reading, for example—can be enhanced so that kids learn to comprehend, build vocabulary, and become fluent readers. Actual classroom scenarios show the strategies in action. A chapter on using this book for staff development is also included.
