Recommended for: all reading teachers

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.
