We wrote Teaching with Text Sets because we witnessed the power of children’s literature to engage students, inspire deep content exploration, and differentiate instruction. We’d also seen the potential for digital multimodal texts to transform K-8 classrooms. This book was an outgrowth of our work as classroom teachers, teacher educators, and researchers.
In 2014, Teaching with Text Sets was a finalist for the Revere Award from the Association of American Publishers. To learn more about the book, you can read this review on School Library Journal.
You can buy the book from Shell Education here.
