This book is divided into two sections. Part One deals with the big ideas and values held by teachers. Some questions that you will encounter are:
"Is teaching the same as learning?"
"What's the difference between critical thinking and creative thinking?" (and why does it matter)
"What's the end goal of close reading? Is it about answering the questions or about the complex thinking as students 'figure' out the text?"
"How do we read for the whole 'understanding' instead of the pieces of reading?"
The second part is all about how "Problem Solving" will look with students. Text examples, demonstrations of student thinking, considering possible problems and always coming back to "steering the ship". This book is a classic. If What Readers Really Do struck a chord in your "Reading Teacher" hear, Dynamic Teaching for Deeper Reading will help you with the language and a clear vision of how problem-solving enables students to take charge of their own learning.
It won't stop you from rescuing striving readers, but this book will give you the foundation to make critical shifts in your reading instruction, reducing teacher-heavy scaffolds, and providing opportunities for trusting students to dig in and do the deep thinking required in the 21st century!
