Exploding the Reading
Building a World of Responses from One Small Story, 50 Interactive Strategies for Increasing Comprehension
Based on learning generated by a 200-year-old folktale used by thirty teachers and a thousand kids, Exploding the Reading explores how to "dig deep" inside the story and encourages teachers to incorporate a variety of response modes. David Booth demonstrates that when students share their personal interpretations with others, they alter, grow, reframe, and extend their understanding of the text.
