TOTAL LITERACY TECHNIQUES
Tools to Help Students Analyze Literature and Informational Texts
By Persida Himmele, William Himmele, and Keely Potter. This book provides more than 50 teacher-tested tools for helping their students read independently and critically. The authors present literacy as an interconnected process that involves emotions, cognition, and multiple opportunities for developing higher-order thinking. With this in mind, they present techniques for helping students develop academic language, become avid and analytical readers, engage with literature and informational texts, discuss texts, and write about texts in clear and cogent ways. Each chapter includes reflections from real teachers and students who share their own literary practices and journeys, bringing the practices to life. Grades 3–12.
