Since the first publication of Strategies That Work, numerous new books on reading comprehension have been published and more educators than ever are teaching comprehension. In this third edition of their groundbreaking book, authors Stephanie Harvey and Anne Goudvis bring you Strategies That Work: Teaching Comprehension for Understanding, Engagement, and Building Knowledge. This new edition is organized around three section:
  • Part I: Starting with the Foundation of Meaning, these chapters provide readers with a solid introduction to reading comprehension instruction, including principles that guide practice, suggestions for text selection, and a review of recent research
  • Part II: Part II contains lessons to put these principles into practices for all areas of reading comprehension
  • Part III: This section shows you how to integrate comprehension instruction across the curriculum and the school day, with a focus on science and social studies
In addition, this new version includes updated bibliographies, including the popular “Great Books for Teaching Content”, online resources, and fully revised chapters focusing on digital reading, strategies for integrating comprehension and technology, and comprehension across the curriculum. Harvey and Goudvis tackle close reading, close listening, text complexity, and critical thinking and demonstrate how your students can build knowledge through thinking-intensive reading and learning.

This third edition is a must-have resource for a generation of new teachers – and a welcome refresher for those with dog-eared copies of this timeless guide to reading comprehension.
