The Common Core Curriculum State Standards for teaching literature and informational texts provide a clear understanding of what students are expected to learn during comprehension instruction. Young Meaning Makers Teaching Comprehension, Grade K-2 (2016), written by D. Ray Reutzel, Sarah K. Clark, Cindy D. Jones, and Sandra L. Gillam is a useful text for understanding theoretical and practical components of text comprehension. The authors provide a framework, language facilitation techniques, model lessons, and assessment types ranging at different levels of comprehension processing. This book empowers educators to create a learning community immersed in conversation surrounding literature in ways that bring texts to life for our students.
