Teaching for Deep Comprehension: A Reading Workshop Approach Teaching for Deep Comprehension: A Reading Workshop Approach


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. The book is framed around three guiding questions: Can comprehension be taught?, How does a model become a barrier to comprehension? And When does a tool become the reason for reading? Linda and Carla mesh complex theories of comprehension with everyday practical examples in such a way as to help teachers develop a better understanding of what it means to comprehend while reading.
