Summary

''In To Understand, Ellin Oliver Keene discovers what's really behind comprehension. She identifies specific Dimensions and Outcomes of understanding - characteristics of readers with a highly developed ability to make sense of text. Then she demonstrates how to leverage the Dimensions and Outcomes into relevant, effective instructions.'' ''To Understand proposes a model that incorporates all aspects of literary instruction and describes how teachers can focus on what matters most. Keene shows that when teachers target the most essential content, they can help every student engage more deeply with texts and discover a passion for reading and learning.'' ''With To Understand, you'll learn to draw out students' intellectual interests and spark improvements in their literacy learning and comprehension - even among students who struggle. You'll see that teaching the Outcomes and Dimensions of Understanding can help readers exceed expectations and also help broaden your vision of their capacity and energy for learning.''--BOOK JACKET.
