By Jennifer Fletcher. How can literature prepare students to be adaptive thinkers and communicators across the diverse aspects of their lives? This insightful guide focuses on using literature to inculcate eight transferable literacy skills and practices: integrating skills and knowledge, reading closely and critically, assessing rhetorical situations, analyzing genres, negotiating different perspectives, developing and supporting a line of reasoning, communicating with self and others in mind, and reading and writing with passion. Writing prompts, readings, discussion questions, graphic organizers, and examples of student work help students to figure out how, when, where, and why they can put their literature education to good use. Grades 9–12. Index. Bibliography. Illustrated. Stenhouse. 296 pages. ©2018.
