Finding Joy and Meaning in WordsBook - 2001
Teachers and parents can significantly improve children's comprehension, enjoyment, and personal involvement in reading at any grade level by using the series of activities provided in this book. Because the ability to imagine is a key skill that many struggling readers often lack, this book outlines strategies to teach students how to add vivid mental pictures to their reading. In a clearly designed set of lessons, students are taken through a series of steps--drawing on the images they see in their minds, prompted by memories recalled through sensory connections and powerful events, and listening to richly descriptive texts--to learn how to create visual images when reading. The lessons in this book are scripted, so teachers can begin using the activities immediately. Included are relaxation exercises designed to ease students into the reading process.
