Every teacher knows the powerful moments when students actually begin to "live" the literature they are reading. Their minds are working nonstop—forming ideas about what they are reading, seeing the characters and the world they live in, validating hunches, evaluating the way the words strike them.

How can we plan for and provide these compelling experiences for all students? That's the basic question the eight teachers in this workshop tackle. Explore along with them to find out what it means to be truly engaged in a work of literature.
