As Stephanie Harvey and Anne Goudvis demonstrate in their popular book, Strategies That Work: Teaching Comprehension to Enhance Understanding, reading comprehension is about much more than answering literal questions at the end of a passage, story, or chapter. In this four-part video series, Stephanie and Anne invite you to join them in the classrooms of Leslie Blauman, Mary Buerger, and Debbie Miller, three teachers with whom they have worked for many years. All teach reading comprehension in the context of reading workshop, modeling their thinking and giving students ample time to practice so they learn what proficient readers do to make sense of the text. To enhance their students' understanding, Debbie, Mary, and Leslie demonstrate several comprehension strategies, including asking questions, determining importance, and inferring. They use a variety of fiction and nonfiction for strategy instruction, including picture books, magazine articles, and young adult novels. In each program, the teachers lead a mini-lesson, confer and share with the kids, and have a conversation with Stephanie and Anne about the comprehension instruction in their classrooms. About The Author Anne Goudvis has been a classroom teacher, staff developer, and adjunct professor of reading and social studies. For the past ten years, she has worked at the Denver-based Public Education and Business Coalition as a staff developer and co-director of the Library Power project, a national initiative to improve teaching and learning in libraries and classrooms. Stephanie Harvey has spent the past thirty years teaching and learning about reading and writing. She received her B.A. from the University of Denver and her M.A. from the University of Colorado. After fifteen years of regular elementary and special education teaching in the Jefferson County Schools in Lakewood, Colorado, Stephanie became a staff developer for the Denver-based Public Education and Business Coalition (PEBC), a partnership of leaders from education and business who support innovation in public schools. In that role, she has worked with educators throughout Colorado coordinating literacy projects, leading workshops, and conducting classroom demonstrations.
