Teaching Critical Reading through Literature. ERIC Digest.
Collins, Norma Decker
Noting that it is only within the last decade that schools have begun to identify ways to optimize language use to promote higher level thinking, this ERIC Digest focuses on developing thinking skills in reading. The digest discusses the impetus for critical reading, the use of children's literature as a tool for teaching thinking skills, a classroom environment which fosters inquiry, the active reader, and the teacher's role.
