Text analysis

Select and evaluate three (3) print-based texts that can be used to teach the same topic or concept (comprehension skill/strategy or vocabulary). You are required to select 3 read aloud texts on the same theme or topic and submit a text critique analyzing the use of these texts in developing students’ critical thinking skills in language and literacy. Choose texts that are informational (Science, Math or Social Studies) and narrative. Conduct an analysis of the texts and explain how they can be used to support students on different reading levels. Use the same text from the read aloud to initiate further research and analysis into your texts can be used to enhance students’ critical thinking in literacy. During your analysis draw upon Bloom’s taxonomy and Webb’s DOK and explain how the texts can be used to promote high levels of thinking through questioning. Your analysis should also include connections to theories and recent research in literacy. For instance, you can connect to Paiget and explore how the text can be used to support student inquiry and prior knowledge. the 3 selected books are 1.Chrysanthemum by Kevin HenkesHenkes, K. (1991).
