How can teachers make sure that all students gain the reading skills they need to be successful in school and in life? In this book, Karen Tankersley describes the six foundational “threads” that students need to study in order to become effective readers: phonemic awareness, phonics and decoding, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension, and higher-order processing. For each area, the author explains how students acquire the reading skills they need and offers a series of skill-building strategies and activities that teachers can use in the classroom. Although reading is perhaps most intensely taught in the kindergarten and 1st-grade classrooms, Tankersley emphasizes that helping students become lifelong readers is a task for all teachers, including content-area teachers in middle and high schools. The Threads of Reading addresses key questions about literacy, such as ◦ What makes a difference in reading achievement? ◦ How much reading time is enough? ◦ How can teachers use writing to build reading skills? ◦ How can teachers help students make meaning from their reading? The strategies in this book address many situations, from individual instruction to small- or large-group instruction, from kindergarten to high school. Teachers will appreciate the multitude of activities provided, and administrators will learn to better evaluate the reading programs in place in their districts and schools. Grounded in both research and “teacher lore” from actual classrooms, this book is a solid guide to helping students become lifelong readers.

"Understanding Texts & Readers makes comprehension make sense. In it, Jennifer Serravallo narrows the distance between assessment and instruction. She maps the four fiction and four nonfiction comprehension goals she presented in The Reading Strategies Book to fourteen text levels and shares sample responses that show what to expect from readers at each. Jen begins by untangling the many threads of comprehension: Levels, engagement, stamina, the relevance of texts, and much more. Then level by level she: - calls out with precision how plot and setting, character, vocabulary and figurative language, and themes and ideas change as fiction across levels - specifies how the complexity of main idea, key details, vocabulary, and text features increases in nonfiction texts - points out what to expect from a reader as text characteristics change - provides samples of student responses to texts at each level - shares progressions across levels to support instructional planning"--

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: 2, University of Munster, language: English, abstract: Reading is an important skill which does not only provide the ability to gain new information but also acquires new language skills. Grabe identifies effective approaches for reading and determines that good readers need "rapid and automatic word recognition skills," "a large recognition of vocabulary," "sound knowledge of syntactic structure and discourse organization," and "metacognitive awareness of reading purposes and text comprehension" . Successful readers are those who use learning strategies effectively. Academic reading requires the development of strategic reading. Readers have to be aware of their goals in reading and be able to administer strategies effectively. These strategies are to be chosen carefully, depending on their purpose in reading. Only then will the reader be able to check his/ her understanding of the text and solve comprehension problems successfully. Out of the various aspects of teaching reading to second language (L2) learners in a classroom setting, the present essay will focus on metacognitive reading strategies. First, the question will be answered what is meant by the term 'metacognitive reading strategies'. A definition will be presented. Then, the essay provides a theoretic framework of metacognitive reading strategies before reading, while reading and after reading. Finally, there will be two examples of how metacognitive reading strategies can be taught in a classroom setting.
