It’s packed with powerful lesson sets—check-listed as to how they meet the standards—assessment rubrics, support for ELLs and diverse learners, and tips on making high tech variations for literacy instruction for grades K, 1, and 2. Journey to Meaning guides teachers and students through three rich, dynamic lesson sets which focus on high-quality texts from diverse genres in the primary grades to foster critical thinking skills and help students develop the ability to dive deeply into a written text or an image, and uncover character complexity, central themes, messages and meaning, and point of view. The lessons sets are:
