Very Happy!! Jul 27, 2008
My son and I worked with this during his summer reading. It was easy for both of us to identify the strategies, challenge his understanding of the lesson and implement the strategies.
Great Comprehension Prep for High School Jun 24, 2008
This was a great prep for improving comprehension and improving active reading skills before entering high school. Lessons were fully explained, and then you were given exercises in a workbook format in order to check your understanding. The exercises were fully explained afterwards, to further explain the concepts in case something wasn't clear.
Great instructional tool Jul 28, 2006
This is an excellent book for both teachers and tutors alike. I use it for both remedial and enrichment for the many different levels I am tutoring. The "Putting It All Together" chapters at the end of each unit are really great. The answer to each question is given along with the corresponding lesson so the student knows exactly which skills need to be practiced. I would highly recommend this outstanding book.
