Into the Book

Into the Book has to be one of the very BEST, comprehensive
Reading websites I have ever seen. 

It is a reading comprehension resource for K-4 students and teachers created by the Wisconsin Educational Communications Board with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and a team of experienced educators. 

The site focuses on eight research-based strategies: 
  • Using Prior Knowledge
  • Making Connections
  •  Questioning
  • Visualizing
  • Inferring
  • Summarizing
  •  Evaluating and Synthesizing
There are two different areas to the website- 
the Student area and the Teacher area. 

The Student area is called Into the Book and has
 online interactive activities as well as engaging 15-minute video
 programs for each of the 8 strategies.

The interactives are fabulous- full of great graphics and sounds
 and lots of interaction and prompts for students.

Here's a short video to show part of how the Synthesizing interactive works: 
Unable to display content. Adobe Flash is required.

The Teacher area is called Behind the Lesson. 
Behind the Lesson provides information and teaching resources 
for each strategy for teachers. 

Teachers can watch our 10-minute professional development videos and 
explore the Web site for lesson plans, video and audio clips, 
downloads of printable posters, songs for each strategy and so much more.  

It truly is an amazing site- you simply have to check it out!re.
