Teaching for Deep Comprehension (repost)

Teaching for Deep Comprehension By Linda J. Dorn, Carla Soffos
2005 | 200 Pages | ISBN: 1571104038 | PDF | 4 MB

Linda Dorn and Carla Soffos describe the process of comprehension as a reflection of the mind—a window into the reader's thoughts. In Teaching for Deep Comprehension they discuss comprehension from a socio-cognitive perspective — specifically, how teachers can use the social context of reading workshop to promote deep comprehension. The book is framed around three guiding questions:

Can comprehension be taught?
How does a model become a barrier to comprehension?
When does a tool become the reason for reading?
Linda and Carla mesh complex theories of comprehension with everyday practical examples in such a way as to help teachers develop a better understanding of what it means to comprehend while reading. The book's appendix contains a wealth of reproducible materials, including text maps, graphic organizers, book lists, and resource charts.
