Back to Teaching the Brain to Read: Strategies for Improving Fluency, Vocabulary, and Comprehension (EBOOK)
Neurologist and middle school teacher Judy Willis connects what you do in the classroom to what happens in the brain when students learn how to read, including:
- Why a classroom has to be safe and supportive in order to overcome barriers to reading fluency.
- How to jumpstart students who are not well prepared for reading with activities that build phonemic awareness.
- Why helping students identify and use patterns is vital to effective reading instruction.
- How to enhance students' vocabulary processing by relating to their learning styles and prior knowledge, and engaging them in multisensory learning.
- Why strategies for teaching reading comprehension need to change with each step of the comprehension process.
With each revelation about the neurology of reading instruction, Willis provides whole-class and individualized activities, lessons, and units that you can use in every grade and subject to help all students become better readers. (ASCD E-Book, 2008) Downloadable PDF File.
