Children’s Reading Comprehension and Assessment

Book Review: Children’s Reading Comprehension and Assessment

As someone who is fascinated with childhood education, I recently picked up the book titled Children’s Reading Comprehension and Assessment. Authored by Scott G. Paris and Steven A. Stahl, this book delves deep into the process of teaching reading comprehension to children.

One thing that stood out to me about this book was its thoroughness. The authors cover every aspect of reading comprehension, from the definition itself to strategies for teaching it effectively in classrooms. Additionally, they provide numerous examples and activities that can be used by parents or teachers to help children improve their understanding of written material.

Another aspect that impressed me was how the authors emphasized the importance of assessment in teaching reading comprehension. They provide readers with tools and techniques for assessing a child’s reading level objectively, in order to tailor instruction to their needs.

One thing I found particularly resonant with this book was the way it highlighted how important it is to make reading fun for children. The authors suggest using books that are engaging and interesting to capture a child’s attention and encourage them to read more frequently.

However, one critique I have of this book is that some sections can be quite dense and jargon-heavy. While this may be useful for educators or researchers, general readers may find certain parts challenging to follow.

Overall, Children’s Reading Comprehension and Assessment is a comprehensive guidebook for anyone looking to improve their child’s reading skills. Its emphasis on assessment, engagement through fun books, and practical strategies make it an invaluable resource for parents and teachers alike. I give this book a score of 4 out of 5 stars!

Description : From the renowned author of Possession, The Children’s Book is the absorbing story of the close of what has been called the Edwardian summer: the deceptively languid, blissful period that ended with the cataclysmic destruction of World War I. In this compelling novel, A.S. Byatt summons up a whole era, revealing that beneath its golden surface lay tensions that would explode into war, revolution and unbelievable change — for the generation that came of age before 1914 and, most of all, for their children. The novel centres around Olive Wellwood, a fairy tale writer, and her circle, which includes the brilliant, erratic craftsman Benedict Fludd and his apprentice Phillip Warren, a runaway from the poverty of the Potteries; Prosper Cain, the soldier who directs what will become the Victoria and Albert Museum; Olive’s brother-in-law Basil Wellwood, an officer of the Bank of England; and many others from every layer of society. A.S. Byatt traces their lives in intimate detail and moves between generations, following the children who must choose whether to follow the roles expected of them or stand up to their parents’ “porcelain socialism.” Olive’s daughter Dorothy wishes to become a doctor, while her other daughter, Hedda, wants to fight for votes for women. Her son Tom, sent to an upper-class school, wants nothing more than to spend time in the woods, tracking birds and foxes. Her nephew Charles becomes embroiled with German-influenced revolutionaries. Their portraits connect the political issues at the heart of nascent feminism and socialism with grave personal dilemmas, interlacing until The Children’s Book becomes a perfect depiction of an entire world. Olive is a fairy tale writer in the era of Peter Pan and Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind In the Willows, not long after Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. At a time when children in England suffered deprivation by the millions, the concept of childhood was being refined and elaborated in ways that still influence us today. For each of her children, Olive writes a special, private book, bound in a different colour and placed on a shelf; when these same children are ferried off into the unremitting destruction of the Great War, the reader is left to wonder who the real children in this novel are. The Children’s Book is an astonishing novel. It is an historical feat that brings to life an era that helped shape our own as well as a gripping, personal novel about parents and children, life’s most painful struggles and its richest pleasures. No other writer could have imagined it or created it....

Publisher by : Simon and Schuster

ISBN :

Description : From New York Times bestselling, award-winning author Ann Packer, a “tour de force family drama” (Elle) that explores the secrets and desires, the remnant wounds and saving graces of one California family, over the course of five decades. Bill Blair finds the land by accident, three wooded acres in a rustic community south of San Francisco. The year is 1954, long before anyone will call this area Silicon Valley. Struck by a vision of his future family, Bill buys the property and proposes to Penny Greenway, a woman whose yearning attitude toward life appeals to him. In less than a decade they have four children. Yet Penny is a mercurial housewife, overwhelmed and undersatisfied, chafing at the conventions confining her. Years later, the three oldest Blair children, adults now and still living near the family home, are disrupted by the return of the youngest, whose sudden presence sets off a struggle over the family’s future. One by one, they tell their stories, which reveal Packer’s “great compassion for her characters, with their ancient injuries, their blundering desires. The way she tangles their perspectives perfectly, painfully captures the tumult of selves within a family” (MORE Magazine). Reviewers have praised Ann Packer’s “brilliant ear for character” (The New York Times Book Review) and her “naturalist’s vigilance for detail, so that her characters seem observed rather than invented” (The New Yorker). Her talents are on dazzling display in The Children’s Crusade, “an absorbing novel that celebrates family even as it catalogs its damages” (People, Book of the Week). This is a “superb storyteller” (San Francisco Chronicle), Ann Packer’s most deeply affecting book yet, “tragic and utterly engrossing” (O, The Oprah Magazine)....

He provided scholarships and summer music programs which continued until his untimely death on December 10, 1967.
