A reading strategy to compel, move students with text
Rather than viewing information in textbooks as "evidence," Mia Hood, an assistant professor of practice at the Relay Graduate School of Education in New York City, suggests a strategy that will enable students to better connect with the information. "Let's teach them to read for real and relevant purposes and also to return to the text to search for evidence when they must," she writes. "Let's teach them not only to use text as evidence to support claims, but also to let the text move, teach, frustrate, confuse, and compel them."
