Thank you for your interest in Jennifer Serravallo’s Understanding Texts & Readers. It’s an amazing resource for clarifying comprehension and simplifying text complexity. We hope you enjoy our sampler, where you’ll read:
- From Part 1: How the puzzling gap between one student’s running record and her comprehension of longer texts led Jen to new research and insight
- From Part 2: Examples that demonstrate how fiction texts and student responses to them change as texts increase in complexity
- From Part 3: Examples that demonstrate how nonfiction texts and student responses to them change as texts increase in complexity
- From Part 4: How the knowledge you gain from assessments can be most effectively linked to strategies such as those in Jen’s Reading Strategies Book.
