In this new book, Lisa Morris makes it easy by taking you through the standards and offering tons of practical strategies, tools, and mentor texts for grades 2-5.

Topics covered include: Teaching questioning, inferring, and authoras purpose; Guiding readers to look at themes and write summaries; Showing students how to recognize structural elements of literature; Teaching the craft of writing and vocabulary development; and Helping students analyse characters and character development. Throughout this highly practical book, youall find a variety of charts and other graphic organizers that can be easily adapted for classroom use.
