Additional Book Details

"This book reminds us why Laura Robb continues to be such an important voice in our field: She looks through kids’ eyes and sees into their futures. Literary conversations don’t just enrich kids days; they offer young people gifts that keep on giving: the ability to take risks, exercise creativity, build empathy, and develop the ability to negotiate."

—from the foreword by Harvey "Smokey" Daniels



When you get right down to it, literacy comes down to this: read, talk, write. But as every teacher knows, it can be hard for students to see and use these three moves in concert—until now. In Read, Talk, Write, Laura Robb lays out the classroom structures that create the time and space for students to have productive talk and written discourse about texts. With Laura’s guidance you’ll

Incorporate six kinds of talk into your instruction, including turn-and-talk, partner talks, and small-group discussions
Use the wealth of in-book and online reproducibles to help students facilitate their own comprehension-building discussions 
Select from 35 lessons that address literary elements and devices, text structures, and comprehension strategies, and then use them to launch student-led talk about any text you teach
Help your readers get in a read-talk-write flow, and know how to move from reading to talking to writing, to bring about deeper thinking
Achieve high levels of performance around inferring, comparing and contrasting, summarizing and synthesizing, and other key skills by way of classroom conversations that make these advanced levels the norm
