‘Test prep isn’t comprehension at all’

“If kids read a lot and use comprehension strategies flexibly and knowledgeably, they will do pretty well on the tests.”

In our latest video conversation with Stephanie Harvey and Anne Goudvis, authors of Strategies That Work, Third Edition, talk about how teaching comprehension strategies and allowing kids plenty of time to read ultimately result not only better test results, but more importantly in kids who are life-long readers.

Join Steph and Anne on Twitter this Thursday, 12/14, at 8:30 p.m. EST for a #G2Great chat where they will answer all of your questions!

Strategies in Japan

Stenhouse books — and our authors — are becoming world travelers. We told you about our books in Rwanda and Belize  a few months ago. Now Stenhouse author Stephanie Harvey (Strategies That Work, Nonfiction Matters) is spending some time in Japan, conducting her Reading is Thinking workshop for East Asia Regional Council of Overseas Schools (EARCOS).  EARCOS serves about eighty-five thousand students and 115 schools throughout East Asia.  They’re sponsoring professional development workshops at their member schools, and Steph’s is one of about three dozen taking place during the 2010-2011 year.  Workshops are conducted in English and most workshop leaders are from the U.S. 

Check out some of Steph’s photos she sent to us from her travels. She was in Kyoto when she sent these pictures.
