Good Habits, Great Readers free pdf What separates a good reader from a great reader? Good habits! Respected authors Doug Fisher and Nancy Frey join Adam Berkin to present a simple plan that helps teachers move students towards higher achievement by capitalizing on seven research-driven habits of strong readers. Each habit--from "reading to learning" to thinking critically--is explained in a dedicated chapter that prepares teachers to nurture good habits in all of their students, building a classroom community of avid readers. *Great Readers See Themselves as Readers *Great Readers Make Sense of Text *Great Readers Use What They Know *Great Readers Understand How Stories Work *Great Readers Read to Learn *Great Readers Monitor and Organize What They Read *Great Readers Are Critical Responses from the Field The authors have "nailed" it as far as the chapter topics capturing important issues in comprehension development go. The order of topics is spot-on developmentally. I am in awe of the skill the authors showed in integrating and operationalizing so many of the comprehension techniques and strategies that teachers are taught all through their coursework.Barbara Pettegrew, Otterbein College I would consider this one of the best user-friendly approaches to critical literacy that I have seen.
