    • Creating a Literate Environment using the Interactive Perspective
      • Teach students how to use different reading strategies:
        • Questioning, visualize, making predictions, making connections, story elements
      • Practice attacking the text
        • Choosing the best and most effective strategy
      • Understanding that we use different strategies for narrative and informational texts.

      • Response Perspective
        • Allowing students the opportunity to experience and respond to the text
        • Gives the students the space to react

      • Create lessons that allow students to look at the story through a different characters point of view
      • Create lessons that allow students to determine which characters in the story could be removed.

      • Provide children the opportunity to just read and then respond
      • Methods of responding to texts
        • Journaling
        • Multi-sensory response
        • Dramatic response
        • Quiet time to respond
    • Critical and Response Perspectives
      • Resources
