Reading & Writing With Meaning: Using Text-Dependent Questions in Any Classroom by Ashley McCoy


Reading & Writing With Meaning provides a structured yet engaging approach to tackling text-dependent questions. These questions help teachers and their students think critically about what they read, regardless of instructional context, subject matter, or grade. Specifically, this book develops teachers’ deep understanding of text-dependent questions, how they are formed, and how they can be used in the classroom.

Instructors working with students of diverse abilities will find this guide’s format, sample text excerpts, and gradual release framework beneficial. Templates, charts, and examples are generously used throughout the book to make text-dependent questions both accessible and useful; a dropbox file of essential templates makes practice opportunities accessible to the teacher.

This book is a great choice for teachers who want to help students develop a deeper understanding of what they read.
