Workshop 9. The Professional Teacher

In a classroom that celebrates active reading, questions about the text are welcomed as signs that people are actually processing the information they uncover in a text.Background Reading

In preparation for Workshop 9, read "Closing Thoughts: Literature in School and Life" in Dr. Judith Langer's Envisioning Literature from the Teachers College Press. Copyright 1995.

A compendium of resources and articles about Dr. Langer's research and the envisionment-building process can be accessed from the National Research Center on English Learning and Achievement's Web site.

Explore the "Envisionment-Building resources" to access articles and guides to fostering literary communities in your own classroom.
