Quick Overview

To reach full comprehension of content and meet curriculum expectations, learners need to go far beyond just reading the words. They must deepen their understanding by asking questions about information, phenomena or ideas they encounter. They need strong reading, writing, language and literacy skills, but they also have to be able to listen, view and visually represent complex concepts about authentic texts and real-world issues. Mary Shea and Nancy Roberts, authors of The FIVES Strategy for Reading Comprehension, walk educators through helping students develop these critical skills.
