This remarkable book gives teachers a wealth of effective strategies for helping students think while they read material in all subject areas. Based on using the best children's books to motivate students, this book shows teachers how to encourage students to recognize that reading is about using the brain to zoom-in, question/infer, find the main idea, make connections, and transform what's on the printed page. The book explores the particular features of nonfiction and offers lists of key books organized around strategies and subject areas. It promotes incorporating more nonfiction into the classroom through read-alouds, author study, and tips for teaching nonfiction forms and text structures. Student samples and reproducible pages that support the five thinking strategies complement this valuable resource.
