      Teaching Students To Think While They Read Revised & Expanded Edition

      Ten years ago, Reading Power was launched in an elementary school in Vancouver. Now, it has evolved into a recognized approach to comprehension instruction being implemented across Canada, the US, UK, Sweden, and China.

      This ground-breaking approach showed teachers how to help students think while they read - connect, question, visualize, infer, and transform. Since the publication of her book, Reading Power, Adrienne Gear has continued to reflect on and refine her understanding of metacognition, comprehension instruction, and the reading power strategies.

      In this revised and expanded second edition of her popular book, Adrienne shares this new understanding and offers teachers new ideas, new lessons, and of course, new anchor books to support the Reading Power lessons.

      An ideal resource for teachers familiar with this strategic approach to teaching reading or those teachers looking for new ways to connect thinking with reading.
