"We teach the reader, not just the reading. We want children to be lifelong learners who read actively and independently across the curriculum, who engage their minds and understand what they read. The Toolkit lessons and practices teach kids to use comprehension strategies to 'read to learn' as they encounter information and ideas in a wide variety of nonfiction texts."
—Stephanie Harvey & Anne Goudvis
