Quick Overview

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

perspective - specifically, how teachers can use the social context of reading
workshop to promote deep comprehension. 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 organisers, book lists and resource charts.

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?
