Reading Between the Lines: Analyzing Skills has a new cover and is now perfect bound!
by Dr. Keith Polette
A fundamental difficultly that many young readers have is that they do not use the skill of analysis as they read. They do not ask questions (especially inferentially-oriented questions) prior to reading. Consequently, many readers fail to achieve high levels of comprehension. Because many young readers connect what they read only to personal experience, not analytically, they often do not have satisfying reading experiences, do not see a personally important purpose for reading, and do not understand what they read as well as they could.
They have not been instructed in the skill of analysis and the importance of asking questions.
Reading Between the Lines: Analyzing Skills presents activities to practice analyzing skills with the written word and visuals, promoting Visual Literacy, addressing the Common Core Anchor Standards for Reading: Key Ideas and Detail; Craft and Structure; and Integration of Knowledge and Ideas as they pertain to analysis.
Dr. Polette includes 50+ activities to teach the process of analyzing print and media.
