In order to understand a topic deeply, learners must access information from a variety of sources and in many different text genres and media - yet our comprehension instruction often focuses on strategies for understanding single texts in isolation. In this book, a gifted teacher shares a powerful approach she's developed for teaching students to explore a topic using multigenre text sets. She includes sample standards-based units of study for a range of grade levels and planning templates for developing your own units built around text sets in a range of genres.
