Comprehension Strategies for Wolfsnail

texas-librarianTexas Librarian posted an interesting article on Wolfsnail: A Backyard Predator on her blog. The article lists comprehension strategies readers might employ to read and understand my book. I must admit that when I first read it, I felt a little like I was coming into the middle of a conversation — and that the conversation was taking place in a specialized language. I asked my sister, the one who is a reading specialist in a Boston elementary school, about it. She said the article details common reading strategies.  She directed me to three books, Mosaic of Thought by Ellin Oliver Keene and Susan Zimmermann; Strategies That Work by Stephanie Harvey and Anne Goudvis; Reading with Meaning by Debbie Miller. I plan to get a hold of these soon.
