Grappling with Text Ideas: Questioning the Author.
McKeown, Margaret G.; And Others
Reading Teacher, v46 n7 p560-66 Apr 1993
Describes an approach, called "Questioning the Author," that is targeted toward getting young readers to engage with their textbooks--to really consider ideas deeply. Notes that the approach attempts to actualize the presence of an author, understand the author as a fallible transmitter of ideas, and transform author's ideas into readers' ideas. (RS)
