Jennifer Serravallo will be sharing information from her latest book. If you use either of her strategies books, you know that one of Jen’s superpowers is taking complicated ideas and creating clear, efficient, effective instruction. Today she’s going to tell you about a resource that unifies two important parts of her body of work: The Reading Strategies Book and the comprehension-goal progressions in her brand-new Understanding Texts & Readers. When Jen had her own classroom and later, as a consultant with The Teachers College Reading and Writing Project, she that as children transition to chapter books as readers, she often needed a more in-depth comprehension assessment that would help her better understand how students were making sense of their books and where to pinpoint instruction. So, she created a whole-book assessment.
