Throughout The FIVES Strategy for Reading Comprehension, I found myself taking notes and thinking already about how this book will influence my teaching tomorrow! I especially appreciate the focus on ELL and intervention groups in each chapter…and am excited for how this book can help non-English teachers tackle the demands of literacy and content reading in their own classrooms in an accessible, systematic, and scaffolded manner.

—Andrea Noonan Fox, 2013 North Dakota Teacher of the Year

The FIVES Strategy for Reading Comprehension is a book about authentic comprehension that will not only help support students with the CCSS, but give them the tools to read with understanding and express their ideas. The FIVES strategy is a fresh perspective on mindful reading and expression.
