Overview

The Third Edition features an array of new and updated individual reading/writing strategies, activities and mini-lessons, and it scaffolds these strategies in extended demonstration lessons that teachers can implement in their middle and secondary English classrooms.

Well-respected author Carol Booth Olson extends far beyond most books intended for teachers of language arts by integrating reading and writing in creative, theory-based ways. Already a classic in its field, this book intends to explore and reinforce the reading/writing connection and thus help teachers make visible to their students what it is that experienced readers and writers do when they make meaning from and with texts. Lauded by students and professors as a clear and straight-forward book, this new edition includes plenty of material about teaching the writing process and responding to literature, and provides new and improved lessons and activities that help students learn specific strategies.

New to this Edition:

  • New demonstration lessons that highlight students showing cognitive strategy use
  • More high school examples and references to high school texts throughout the book
  • A focus on 21st century literacies throughout the book with specific activities influenced by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills Framework and the 21st Century English Skills Map
  • Differentiation activities in several demonstration lessons for different student populations
