Text sets in action, pathways through content area literacy, Mary Ann Cappiello, Erika Dawes

"Text Sets in Action inspires and supports teachers as they create language arts, science, math, and social studies lessons, using multimodal, multigenre text sets. These sets are comprised of high-quality children's nonfiction, fiction, poetry, and real world texts of all genres and modalities. When the texts are juxtaposed with one another, students and teachers discover different ways of seeing and understanding the world around them, asking and answering important questions and then creating their own unique texts in response to their learning"--, Provided by publisher
