Into the Book is a multimedia teaching resource designed to enhance reading comprehension for K-3 students, as well as their ability to think and learn across the curriculum.
The nine Into the Book student episodes feature an extraordinary classroom where a group of ordinary students use powerful learning strategies to enter the world of the story. These 15-minute programs show student viewers how to use these strategies when reading fiction, nonfiction, or everyday text. They also model real-life applications of the strategies.
In the professional development videos, we go Behind the Lesson as teachers demonstrate how they are using these strategies effectively with their students. Programs combine actual classroom footage with dialogue and personal reflection on instructional practices.
An interactive Web site and comprehensive print materials round out the curriculum package.
