PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Reading comprehension is a complex combination of reading strategies. It is complex to teach an even more complex to assess, but this reading journal makes it simple.

In just 20 minutes a day, students will receive instruction in all of the reading strategies needed for full reading comprehension. Additionally, using the provided response sheet and rubric teachers will be able to assess comprehension during read aloud sessions and during independent reading.

In addition to step-by-step directions, this read aloud journal provides a year-long guide on what strategies to teach when, what purpose questions to use with each strategy and even suggests books to go with each strategy taught.

This is an easy way to grade student comprehension, complete with a place for teacher instruction commentary. This one-stop shop on reading comprehension will change your read aloud forever.

This product is geared for grades 3-6. If you teach younger students, check out our Primary Read Aloud Journal.
