Literacy is a hollow set of skills if it is not enlivened by active, precise, and creative thinking on the part of the students. Without it there is no real comprehension, articulating of ideas, or conversation of any depth or breadth. This book should be used by teacher-preparation institutions, teachers, and preteachers who want to develop authentic literacy in their students that is, the ability to comprehend and successfully master complex assignments in reading, writing, speaking, and listening, as encouraged by the Common Core State Standards.In chapter 1, author Schreck shows readers how to teach their students to read and write closely.

In chapter 2, she explains how the brain uses stories to make sense of information. Chapter 3 illustrates why, because of the way children learn, we must teach lessons not only once but reiterate them throughout the year. Chapter 4 explains the importance for literacy of student questioning. Chapter 5 offers tips for encouraging quieter students to participate. Chapter 6 provides strategies for engaging students in convergent and divergent thinking processes.

Chapter 7 shows how difficult-to-understand material can be made accessible and engaging. Finally, chapters 8 and 9 address the challenges of making literacy instruction meaningful, and elaborate on how instruction is affected by the Common Core State Standards.Throughout are detailed examples using classical and modern plays, novels, short stories, painting, and film, along with many reproducible pages.
