"The experiences provided in these 37 lessons parallel the readings and tasks recommended by the Common Core State Standards. The main difference is that our lessons put student curiosity and engagement first."
—Harvey “Smokey” Daniels and Nancy Steineke

In this highly anticipated follow-up to Texts and Lessons for Content-Area Reading, Harvey “Smokey” Daniels and Nancy Steineke share their powerful strategies for engaging students in challenging, meaningful reading of fiction and poetry using some of their favorite short, fresh texts—or, as they put it, “full-strength adult literature that gives us English majors a run for our interpretive money— but is still intriguing enough to keep teen readers digging and thinking.” Use the 37 innovative, step-by-step, common-core-correlated lessons with the reproducible texts provided, with selections from your literature textbook, or with your own best-loved texts to teach close reading skills and deep comprehension strategies. Give students opportunities to read and synthesize across texts with the 8 thematic text set lessons provided, or use the model unit outlines for using the lessons with The Giver, To Kill a Mockingbird, and The Great Gatsby as springboards for planning your own novel studies.
