Students must "do the doing" if they are to succeed. This groundbreaking book offers a literacy instruction plan designed to yield independent effort and engagement. The tasks in this book ensure gradual release, helping students forge their own path in becoming better readers and writers.
Teacher Librarian Beth McGuire provides librarians and teachers with reproducible activities to encourage students to think about, discuss and provide a purpose for reading current star reviewed and award winning literature while practicing their comprehension strategies. Activities reinforce comprehension of the material and include an extension activity for going beyond the text, allowing the students to practice their higher level thinking skills. Librarians and teachers can make copies of the activities to directly incorporate into their lessons in the content areas. Titles included are organized by level and by curricular area. Usable for grades 6-8.
