EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

ABSTRACT: This case study examines features and processes of a sixth grade teacher (Jane) utilizing text sets as a tool for facilitating critical thinking. Jane's strong vision and student-centered beliefs informed her use of various texts to teach language arts as she worked to address demands of the Common Core State Standards. Text sets promoted multiple perspectives and fit with her beliefs about student empowerment. Despite contextual constraints, Jane used professional judgment to apply her learning from professional development to design and implement instruction. Findings support the idea that teachers need autonomy when choosing multiple texts across genres as well as effective strategies to engender critical thinking. Results can help guide further inquiry into types of teaching and classroom environments that facilitate or impede critical thinking.

In order to understand a topic deeply, learners must access information from a variety of sources and in many different text genres and media—yet our comprehension instruction often focuses on strategies for understanding single texts in isolation. In this book, a gifted teacher shares a powerful approach she’s developed for teaching students to explore a topic using multigenre text sets. She includes sample standards-based units of study for a range of grade levels and planning templates for developing your own units built around text sets in a range of genres. You’ll also find other supports such as detailed instructions for helping students to assemble their own text sets that they can use independently. This unique resource will help you prepare your students for the complex, multigenre literacy demands of the 21st century. For use with Grades 2–5.
