   Understanding Texts & Readers

Dear Jen Serravallo Event Registrants,

Recently, I was in communication with Jen Serravallo regarding the potential of her returning to present for TCARC in the future. We are on her waitlist - and if you haven't seen or heard, her new book is now available! She shared the following message for YOU! 

"Would you mind sharing theNEW BOOKwith those who attended and let them know the stuff I talked about is in there if they’d like to read more?" ~ Jen Serravallo

Here is the information! Enjoy!

As you learn more about how comprehension works over a range of texts, you'll find text complexity simpler, clarify comprehension, and make great book matches, as you choose just-right strategies to share with readers.
