Description

Investigating Texts offers scaffolded activities to help students explore what it means to behave like a reader, how ways of reading can change, and how a given text can be read in different ways. Individual and group activities set the stage for writing and discussion through prediction, chart building, comparative analysis, and manipulation of conventional fiction and nonfiction “ingredients.” These activities are keyed to fiction and nonfiction texts reprinted in the book, including advertising and newspaper copy, an encyclopedia entry, and fiction by authors as diverse as Guy de Maupassant, Roald Dahl, and Mrs. Nguyen, an oral storyteller from Vietnam. NOTE: Customers outside of the United States and Canada should contact Chalkface Press at www.chalkface.net.au for purchasing information.
