    Now I Get It! Teaching Struggling Readers to Make Sense of What They Read

    Now I Get It! Teaching Struggling Readers to Make Sense of What They Read

    by Joan Lazar and Christine Vogel

    Now I Get It! guides teachers in showing their students how to use logic to comprehend more of what they are reading. The book provides complete lessons—in the logic of high quality reading comprehension—that are entertaining and effective and gradually increase in difficulty. Perfect for helping teachers prepare students to achieve the Common Core State Standards, Now I Get It! explains how to:

    • engage students in reading closely to find textual evidence
    • make logical inferences drawn from text
    • cite specific textual evidence to support conclusions drawn.

    The lessons empower a range of struggling readers, second graders to adults, to quickly use the same logical strategies experienced readers employ automatically. When they catch on, students say, Now I get it! —and they do.

About This Book

"If your teacher has to die, August isn't a bad time of year for it," begins Richard Peck's novel, a book full of his signature wit and sass. Russell Culver is fifteen in 1904, and he's raring to leave his tiny Indiana farm town for the endless sky of the Dakotas. To him, school has been nothing but a chain holding him back from his dreams. Maybe now that his teacher has passed on, they'll shut the school down entirely and leave him free to roam.

No such luck. Russell has a particularly eventful season of schooling ahead of him, led by a teacher he never could have predicted — perhaps the only teacher equipped to control the likes of him: his sister Tansy. Despite stolen supplies, a privy fire, and more than any classroom's share of snakes, Tansy will manage to keep that school alive and maybe, just maybe, set her brother on a new, wiser course.

As he did in A Long Way from Chicago and A Year Down Yonder, Richard Peck creates a whole world of folksy, one-of-a-kind characters here — the enviable and the laughable, the adorably meek and the deliciously terrifying. There will be no forgetting Russell, Tansy, and all the rest who populate this hilarious, shrewd, and thoroughly enchanting novel.
