This book is a wonderful blending of methodologies. This juxtaposition of art and literature serves as an instrument for teachers to inspire their students to create, critique, compare and predict, all higher-level intellectual behaviors, while composing across symbol systems. The work contains detailed classroom transcripts of strategies that lend themselves to culturally responsive teaching while engaging students and developing in them the desire to learn. Following a foreword by Tonya Huber and a preface by Ruth A. Vinz, this book contains: (1) Opening Possibilities Through Transmediation (Mary Ann Reilly); (2) Global Multicultural Literature and the Read-Aloud and Writer's Workshop as a Site for Social Justice (Jane M. Gangi); (3) "Living in a Dream of Music": Fluency Through Choral Reading and Narrative Pantomime (Jane M. Gangi); (4) "Having More To Say": Developing Writing Fluency Through Collage (Mary Ann Reilly); (5) Recasting Text Through Reader's Theater and Story Dramatization (Jane M.
