Recommended for: all reading teachers
Read from February 09 to April 11, 2010

Definitely a must-read for reading teachers at all levels. Wilhelm gives very practical strategies for increasing student engagement and comprehension of texts through the use of drama. It sounds scary but this isn't performance drama but rather process drama, whose purpose is to help visualize and bring to life a particular moment, scene, or character. I got a TON out of this book and have been using the strategies in my classroom, with much success.
