Abstract:

Mosaic of Thought proposes a new instructional paradigm focused on in-depth instruction in the strategies used by proficient readers. The authors take us beyond the traditional classroom into literature-based, workshop-oriented classrooms. Through vivid portraits of these remarkable environments, we see how instruction looks in dynamic, literature-rich reader's workshops. As the students connect their reading to their background knowledge, create sensory images, ask questions, draw inferences, determine what's important, synthesize ideas, and solve problems, they are able to construct a rich mosaic of meaning.

Straightforward and jargon-free, Mosaic of Thought is relevant to all literature-based classrooms, regardless of level. It offers practical tools for inservice teachers, as well as essential methods instruction for preservice teachers at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
