The best strategies to use are ones that use reading that supports their inquiry, creativity, and uniqueness. Send me a note and I can give you a list of things I use as I go through stories and books with students.

The CCSS outlines some great focus areas as you read literature with students. As we're reading, I post the standards on the board and we stop to discuss when content is relevant - for example, when we see an example of setting affecting the plot. If students know what good readers absorb while they are reading, they can begin to look for those connections. www.corestandards.org
