Help students appreciate texts and write about them with conviction.

Responding to a comprehension question is a surprisingly complex task. It draws on multiple skills: students must be able to read and analyze a text passage; consider what aspect of the text the question addresses; and then quickly and concisely write about their ideas, citing evidence to support them. Hence the prominence of constructed-response questions in standardized testing.

In this refreshingly clear and upbeat guide, literacy consultant Nancy Boyles gives a step-by-step demonstration of how to help students achieve success with this task—and in the process of unpacking the steps involved, demonstrates how the instruction can inspire teachers’ creativity as well as deepen students’ literacy skills.

Filled with ready-to-use scaffolds for every stage of instruction—sets of sample questions, anchor charts, cue cards, answer frames—this is a one-stop resource for teaching students how to organize their thoughts about what they’ve read, and then set them down in writing.

About the Author:

Nancy Boyles, a consultant and former classroom teacher, is the author of multiple books for literacy educators, including Classroom Reading to Engage the Heart and Mind. She lives in Truro, Massachusetts.
