    1. You can read this cover to cover or pieces at a time whatever you do, just read it! There is a newer edition, but I read this one in 2001 and it changed my teaching!Update: just returned from attending seminar with Ms. Harvey And am inspired to reread this book. What she wrote in Strategies That Work is still relevant today cially in this day of test driven teaching. "Always trust your best judgement " nonsense and practical. I will reading the updated edition!

    2. This book was very influential when I first started teaching and has continued to influence how I teach and what I believe about teaching reading.

    3. I took a class from Stephanie and really enjoyed it. I use what I learned often. I need to find my book again for a refresher!

    4. Places visualization, a comprehension technique I use in my work with kids as the centerpiece of a spectrum of increasingly complex strategies for understanding: Making Connections, Questioning, Visualizing, Inferring, Determining Importance and Synthesizing. While there's almost too much here, I guess that's not too much of a complaint (better than not enough) and for someone who wants to learn about kids' lit, there are great appendixes with lists of different types of books.Good quote: When w [...]

    5. Several of us at work read this as a book club during the winter/spring of 2007. The idea is that together we would investigate various reading strategies and share our successes and frustrations.Interestingly, Strategies That Work mirrors a lot of what we as a district are moving towards with adopting our L.E.A.D.S. model in the middle school; namely, restructuring the language program to teach strategies rather than details and incorporating other disciplines (Social Studies and Science) as we [...]

    6. This book gave a comprehensive run-down of major comprehension strategies for readers in Kindergarten through 8th grade. The strategies included Making Connections, Questioning, Visualizing, Inferring, Determining Importance, and Synthesizing. Each strategy had a chapter dedicated to its use, complete with possible lessons, literary resources to teach the strategy, and codes for students to annotate when using the strategy. The book also includes several appendices listing books to use with each [...]

    7. This book had some great strategies for teaching making connections, questioning, inferring, visualizing and synthesizing information. I think the methods described would be a great help in teaching students comprehension strategies, but I think the program would work best if it was begun young and continued throughout the education of the student. They could be used as an intervention at any time, but I see this as a comprehensive program that would be most effective if implemented across grade [...]

    8. I read this book with a group of colleagues to help encourage reading in the classroom. It was actually quite interesting. I went into the reading study with the idea that I was a Social Studies teacher and I didn't have too many opportunities to teach reading in my classroom; after working with others, I am now seeing the many ways I can help my students become stronger readers on many different levels. I believe this is a great book because it opened my eyes of the opportunities I have to reac [...]

    9. Didn't read this, just skimmed it. The advice is basically consistent with other reading comprehension resources: make connections between the text and your experience/other texts/other parts of the original text. Visualize. Ask questions.This book contains much more detail than other similar books I've read (>300 pages), with many detailed lesson plans. Each technique is broken down into several possible variants and flavours, each of which is treated separately. Most of the examples relate [...]

    10. I read this book in 2001 and it changed the way I teach reading comprehension. It is one of my comprehension bibles, along with Elen Keene's Mosaic of Thought and Debbie Miller's Reading with Meaning. I carry all three with me wherever I go. This is the first book I give to a new teacher. Outstanding!!

    11. Have had this on my bookshelf for some time now, and am just now getting to it. I have read bits and pieces over the years, but not a thorough reading. This book is packed with so much information, so many skills and ideas that I am finding myself reading v-e-r-y slowly; I keep stopping to make notes or write a lesson plan!

    12. I am always skeptical about reading strategies, just because so often they can be overused by the well-meaning and interfere with kids' enjoyment of reading. However, this one seems to focus on strategies for nonfiction, and the writers take care to point out that strategies are more appropriate for efferent (rather than aesthetic) reading.

    13. This book was packed full of strategies to help young readers become more successful students. It included questioning, visualizing, determining importance in text, synthesizing, and many other strategies.

    14. A great book about teaching reading for teachers of any level of experience. Easy to reference comprehension strategies and a wonderful organized collection of texts make this a book I am sure I will be looking back at for years to come.

    15. Another book that I wished I had more time to delve into while I was teaching! Brought back some great inservice moments though!

    16. This book altered my teaching practices forever-- a seminal work in how to teach reading comprehension to children.

    17. I'm just now reading this book for a literacy class, but Harvey writes everything well, so I feel confident with the rating.

    18. Simply put - my bible for teaching reading. I read edition one years ago and it changed the whole way I teach. The new edition is excellent. Every teacher should read this book.
