Easy-to-implement cognitive strategies that help K–3 teachers develop skills they need to access nonfi ction texts, such as identifying facts, interpreting facts, making connections to facts, and building knowledge. The author demonstrates how to model strategies and help students apply them to print and electronic sources. Each chapter is organized around consistent framework that provides: • A theoretical overview of the strategy. • A mind picture” for describing the strategy to young learners. • Ways to teach the strategy to the whole class and in small groups. • Ways to help students apply the strategy to their own reading and writing. • Ways to assess students to make sure they’re using the strategy wisely. The result: students move from literal to conceptual understanding of the texts they read. They become information literate, ready for more challenging reading in the upper grades.Castagna, Vicki Benson is the author of 'Teaching the Information Generation Strategies for Helping Primary Readers Understand the Fact-filled Texts They Encounter Throughout Their School Years', published 2007 under ISBN 9780439517829 and ISBN 0439517826.
