It's comforting to know that there are so many great ideas out there for teaching reading comprehension. I really think that teachers (especially English teachers) tend to flail around when they assign reading and their kids don't absorb much of the text. The underlying argument is that reading for speed or completion is like not reading at all - good readers take their time with texts, mark them up, write responses, etc.

I am teaching an undergrad course online and picked this up to see if there would be useful ideas for content teachers. It's going to be a little to apply, but yes, I think so. Most important is the idea of modeling. Specific examples and questions are provided. What I felt I could have used more of was 1. information on detecting reading problems in my students and 2. application examples over a wider range of disciplines and ages.

This text discusses the problem many students face when it come to reading. It provides comprehensive strategies that teachers can use to help improve their students reading skills.

This is an appropriate text for future and current teachers. Reading a very necessary skill for all subject areas and this book give a break down of all the things students may struggle with and provides ways to help those students improve their skills.

Nice professional reading for teachers of all content areas. The work features great explanations, descriptions and application suggestions of reading strategies for adolescent students. These strategies are nothing radical new, but are excellently presented from a practicing teachers point of view. They are designed to engage the student and get them to think, appreciate and understand reading. Ready made templates that can be applied directly in the classroom are also included in the back. A great starter for the coming academic year.… (mere)
