Course Description: Have you eagerly been awaiting Jennifer Serravallo’s new book, Understanding Texts and Readers? Here it is! In this course, we will dive into the book, looking at Serravallo’s four fiction and four nonfiction comprehension goals - the same ones that are in The Reading Strategies Book. We will learn how Jen simplifies text complexity, dive deeply into each level, and more! This book is divided into 4 sections - Part I: Readers, Texts and Levels—and What It Means for Comprehension, Part II: Fiction: Texts, Readers, and Comprehension, Part III: Nonfiction: Texts, Readers, and Comprehension, and Part IV: Assessment and Instruction: Bringing Your Understanding of Texts and Readers to the Classroom. We will study all four sections. This course is intended for teachers in grades 1 - 8.
