STRATEGIES FOR FICTION
COMPLETE SET: 2 activity books with reproducible pages, 2 CD-ROMs
By Jessica Hathaway. Two activity books encourage students to improve their reading comprehension skills and have fun writing about fiction. Both books provide reproducible handouts supported by detailed descriptions of classroom activities along with correlations to Common Core and McRel standards and examples by grade range. Activities like think-alouds, concept maps, character portraits, plot diagrams, story mapping, vocabulary self-collection, and read-cover-remember-retell build vocabulary, prior knowledge, prediction and inference, questioning, and summarizing strategies; acquaint students with text structures and features; and develop the ability to visualize mental imagery. Specific suggestions for differentiating instruction are provided for every strategy. A CD-ROM with reproducibles accompanies each book. Grades 1–12. Bibliographies. Suggested readings. 8½" x 11".
