West Clermont literacy specialist publishes book for teachers

West Clermont School District literacy specialist Tanny McGregor has written a book called “Comprehension Connections: Bridges to Strategic Reading.”

The book, which took a year and a half to write and is being published by respected educational publisher Heinemann, will be in bookstores Feb. 15.

“Comprehension Connections is about reading comprehension,” McGregor said in her office Jan. 29. “It gives teachers practical ways to help kids make thinking visible. It enables kids to keep track of their thinking and helps teachers explain in concrete ways the abstract processes that we utilize in comprehending texts.”
