Nancy's comprehension and written response strategies give teachers the first-tier Response-to-Intervention (RTI) help they need to get students off to a great start! Your intermediate students may be able to orally explain what they read, but can they write a logical, thorough, and well-elaborated response to text? This professional resource shows you how to teach written response as an expository piece, with a sequence of explicit instruction for both narrative and expository literature, 29 open-ended comprehension questions, models and strategies, and an annotated list of appropriate books. Helps all learners succeed at responding in writing to open-ended comprehension questions. By Nancy Boyles, associate professor in Southern Connecticut State University's graduate reading program. For teachers of grades 3-8. Can be adapted easily for use with high school students.
