Mentor Text Link Up

I found this Linky Party courtesy of Head over Heels for Teaching.

I have an amazing book my Lang. Arts teacher required us to read in my undergrad program that changed my life when I read & I WILL implement in my classroom this year.

The book I am talking about is Deeper Reading by Kelly Gallagher

It gives so many different strategies to help readers, young and older alike get more out of the text and content.  I really love the Snowglobe activity, it allows the reader to see the setting as an additional character to the story and thus see how relevant it is to the overall story.  After reading this book I found myself becoming a better reader, along with comprehending the text better.  I have always been a voracious reader, and now because of the strategies introduced in this book, I found myself enjoying reading even more.
