Summary: Parents are confused and worried. They''re bombarded with headlines about the failure of America''s children to learn to read well; they want their children to become avid readers but know they are struggling; they hear about phonics vs. whole language but have no idea which approach to take or how to help. 7 Keys to Comprehension removes the confusion. Reading is about one thing and one thing only: understanding. If children don''t understand what they read, the wor
ds are useless babble and they will never really embrace reading.

Based on cutting-edge research and 13 years of applying that research in hundreds of classrooms, 7 Keys to Comprehension demystifies reading and gives parents and teachers (who aren''t already using this program) practical, thoughtful advice about the 7 simple thinking strategies that proficient readers use:
  • Connecting reading to their background knowledge
  • Creating sensory images
  • Asking questions
  • Drawing inferences
  • Determining what''s important
  • Synthesizing ideas
  • Solving problems
Parents will learn that by reinforcing these steps, they can help their kids learn that reading is not a chore but a lifetime adventure.
