When students learn to read strategically, they read to learn!

How do some students extract complex information from advanced reading materials while others struggle to find the meaning of even simple passages? What characteristics do strategic readers exhibit that others don′t possess? Unlocking the cognitive strategies of exceptional readers means finding ways to teach every student to read strategically, and help them be successfull in the classroom and beyond. This essential reading instruction teaching tool offers hard evidence to show how effective readers use specific strategies to extract and comprehend information.

Seven Strategies of Highly Effective Readers melds scientific research with hands-on experience to offer a comprehensive look at reading instruction. Instructors will discover that they can use the seven strategies no matter what their teaching style, and students will discover how to read to learn. McEwan has developed easily reproducible tools geared toward helping teachers get the most out of their readers:

  • Teacher Think-Alouds to facilitate modeling the seven strategies for your students
  • Templates to speed planning time
  • Activities to encourage use of the seven strategies
  • Forms, posters, props, and prompts to assist both students and teachers

While theories come and go, research has shown that using these seven strategies will prove successful in the classroom-and beyond.
