This book presents an approach to engaging students in reading informational or literary text and guiding them to write responses that go beyond summarization.
Students write reactions, question the text and also write solutions to problems.
The step by step guide serves as crutch for helping young readers write in response to their reading.
It includes teacher models, student samples, and a friendly student rubric.
It is a student's resource, but is equally useful to teachers, parents, and tutors.
It entails journal space where students can archive their writing.
