Liang, Lauren Aimonette; Galda, Lee
Reading Teacher, v63 n4 p330-333 Dec 2009

This article presents some activities, adapted from the new IRA book "Children's Literature in the Reading Program" (third edition), which demonstrate how to combine the goals of strategic reading and responsive, aesthetic reading.
