BookMarks!Explore reading and writing!
Capture students’ attention and open their minds — and hearts — to the delights of reading. “BookMarks!” guides students to explore what they read, apply it to their own lives, and then reinterpret what they’ve read in their own writing. Via activities in both creative writing and creative reading, students will gain first-hand experience working with symbols, allusions, point of view, description, action, voice, diction, and other elements of style that make reading more than just words across a page. As a result, students will identify with reading material in a larger, contextual sense and be encouraged to discover for themselves the power and capabilities of language and literature.
