  5. 5. Teacher-Directed Instruction The first step toward engaging adolescent and teenage students is teacher-led discussion. The Teacher Guide outlines the carefully chosen Core Novel, offering teacher-directed strategy lessons and step-by step guides for classroom implementation. The flexible framework makes it easy for teachers to draw diverse learners into the reading and writing processes.

  9. 9. Peer-Supported Learning Using the gradual release of responsibility model, teachers shift students from whole-class, teacher-directed instruction to guided learning in small groups called Literature Circles. The combination of stimulating novels and research-proven strategies for collaborative learning creates an environment that supports authentic student-led discussions and interaction with text. As a guide on the side, the teacher observes students’ progress.
  10. 10. Literature Circle Novels
  11. 11. Self-Directed Learning The final step in the release of responsibility gives students a chance to experience literature on their own. Independent reading with audio support increases students’ comprehension, vocabulary, and fluency, and creates more confident readers. When used with the creative and challenging strategy lessons, Independent Reading books give students the opportunity to become active, independent readers.
