Now I Get It! guides teachers in showing their students how to use logic to comprehend more of what they are reading. The book provides complete lessons—in the logic of high quality reading comprehension—that are entertaining and effective and gradually increase in difficulty. Perfect for helping teachers prepare students to achieve the Common Core State Standards, Now I Get It! explains how to:
• engage students in reading closely to find textual evidence
• make logical inferences drawn from text
• cite specific textual evidence to support conclusions drawn.
The lessons empower a range of struggling readers, second graders to adults, to quickly use the same logical strategies experienced readers employ automatically. When they catch on, students say, Now I get it! —and they do.
This book offers strategies for beginning readers: cloze, nicknaming, scattered clues, and paraphrasing; as well as strategies for more advanced readers: nonsense, referents, unraveling, and kerneling. You will be sure to find just the strategy and lesson you need for every reader in your classroom!
