The Making Meaning program is a classroom-tested K–8 reading comprehension curriculum that combines the latest comprehension research with support for students’ social and ethical development.
The program uses nonfiction and fiction read-aloud books to teach students nine different comprehension strategies while also developing their social values to create a supportive community of readers.
