about

In response to the overwhelming demand for more high-quality, age-appropriate nonfiction texts, Stephanie Harvey and Anne Goudvis have developed the three volume series Toolkit Texts: Short Nonfiction for Guided and Independent Practice. With articles personally selected and edited by Harvey and Goudvis, these volumes are designed to provide supplementary texts that are precisely matched to the strategies described and supported in The Comprehension Toolkit.

The Toolkit Texts volumes have been developed in collaboration with Carus Publishing, the creator of numerous wonderful magazines for children including Cobblestone, Click, Ask, Faces, and many others. Some key features of the volumes include:

  • The articles focus on high-interest topics that engage students and help build strong readers while also building background knowledge in numerous content areas.
  • The articles present information in a range of formats typical of nonfiction texts including time lines, sidebars, interviews, and maps and diagrams
  • The front matter for each book provides the needed professional support for the teacher to be successful combining the articles with his/her work with the Comprehension Toolkit.
