Teaching for Deep Comprehension
A Reading Workshop ApproachLinda J. Dorn and Carla Soffos
Linda Dorn and Carla Soffos describe the process of comprehension as a reflection of the mind—a window into the reader's thoughts. In Teaching for Deep Comprehension, they discuss how teachers can use the social context of reading workshop to promote deep comprehension. Linda and Carla help teachers develop a better understanding of what it means to comprehend while reading by meshing theories of comprehension with everyday practical examples. Supporting the text is a DVD containing eighty-five minutes of video from a first-grade reading workshop, an adult book discussion, a fourth-grade reading workshop, and other settings.
