The ability to read for deep understanding is fundamental to learning. Students who struggle with reading comprehension will find it more and more difficult to grasp the curriculum as they progress through elementary and middle school. Teaching struggling readers effective strategies to build comprehension skills is therefore one of the most beneficial things a teacher can do to prevent ongoing and ever-increasing academic difficulties. 

In Four Powerful Strategies for Struggling Readers, Grades 3-8, Lois A. Lanning identifies proven strategies for strengthening reading comprehension and describes how teachers can work with struggling readers in small group settings to help them learn these invaluable strategies and better understand what they read.

The author examines the following four evidence-based comprehension strategies, including why they work, how to implement them, when to use each, and what they look like in practice:

  • Summarizing
  • Creating meaningful connections
  • Self-regulating
  • Inferring
Teachers and literacy coaches will learn specific teaching techniques to use with each strategy, and will be guided through a gradual-release approach that leads to student-directed learning. Detailed lesson examples for reading instruction and content area reading are provided as well.
