Teaching for deep comprehension


Linda Dorn and Carla Soffos describe the process of comprehension as a reflection of the mind—a window into the reader's thoughts. In Teaching for Deep Comprehension they discuss comprehension from a socio-cognitive perspective — specifically, how teachers can use the social context of reading workshop to promote deep comprehension. The book is framed around three guiding questions:

  • Can comprehension be taught?
  • How does a model become a barrier to comprehension?
  • When does a tool become the reason for reading?
