Comprehension and Response: Put It Into Practice

Put It Into Practice

Create a Handbook

In this ongoing project, you will collect literacy resources in a Handbook for Effective Literacy Practices to use in your classroom.

Today, you will create a section focused on comprehension strategies and instruction. Include resources you already use, and plan to use in the future. Place these resources in the section for Comprehension and Response. You may want to include:


Do this activity with your colleagues to create a comprehensive collection of resources and instructional plans.

  • the matched books and strategies you compiled in Activity #1
  • the lesson plan you developed in Activity #2
  • a list of books used specifically for modeling and demonstrating
  • graphic organizers for organizing information
  • other lesson plans you have designed for comprehension instruction
  • a list of books that are versions of the same story
  • questions for response (efferent and aesthetic) to use with any book
  • postreading written response questions to use with any book
  • easy books for struggling readers to practice strategies

Submit a copy of your completed Handbook at the end of the workshop series.
