'With Reading for Meaning, there is no more of the 'in one eye, out the other' type of reading that so many students are guilty of, because Reading for Meaning fosters students' active engagement before, during, and after reading. Students exposed to Reading for Meaning over time internalize reading strategies that are essential for making meaning from complex text. In short, Reading for Meaning helps students learn from their textbooks while it prepares them to learn for life' - Nancy Spaniak, Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Professional Development, Homewood-Flossmoor High School District 233, IL

"Reading for Meaning has become a weekly activity for my classroom. I use it to supplement our reading series. I find that the children in my classroom are starting to discuss the book. They will talk about why they agree or disagree with each other, and they always have good evidence to back it up. They also enjoy Reading for Meaning. When we have a week that we do not have Reading for Meaning, they get upset. This is a very useful tool that makes the children in my classroom able to think deeper into the stories and express their thoughts." -- Heather Hill, Teacher
