From the Publisher
"If you are concerned about how to elevate the thinking in your classroom, how to infuse high quality nonfiction texts into your curriculum, or where to look for visual texts that will augment your language arts and/or social studies lessons, then look no further than Teaching with Text-Based Questions. The book is divided into six easy-to-read chapters, each ending with thought provoking questions and space to jot how you might integrate his ideas into your own classroom."
--Tess Alfonsin, Middleweb
"Regardless of years of experience or area of expertise, educators need this book in their writing toolbox. Kevin Thomas Smith offers concise, practical, and meaningful examples that will help teachers guide students in mastering the skill of critical thinking."
--Matt Rickey, Language Arts/Social Studies Teacher, East Noble High School, Kendallville, IN
"While the Common Core provides the literary standards for K-12 educators, it does not explain how to use the standards with real students. Kevin takes these rigorous standards and provides step-by-step instructions for educators to use from the very first day of school. This book gives the necessary tools to coax students deeper into all types of texts from visual to informational."
