The Me and Mr. Bell Teacher Resource is designed to meet the needs of diversity of
learners. Each Reading is explored through learning tasks designed to meet a range of literacy learning outcomes. Activities invite learners through whole class, small group, and peer discussion to access prior learning and increase levels of competence and understanding through the facilitation of collaborative learning. Increasing the middle school learner͛s capacity to understand the features of text, and how meaning is created through stylistic elements is important in the creation of critical and sophisticated readers.
