-Encourage responsive and responsible reading
-Develop lifelong reading habits "We think it's time we finally do become a nation of readers, and we know it's time students learn to tell fake news from real news. It's time we help students understand why how they read is so important," explain Beers and Probst. "Disrupting Thinking is, at its heart, an exploration of how we help students become the reader who does so much more than decode, recall, or choose the correct answer from a multiple-choice list. This book shows us how to help students become the critical thinkers our nation needs them to be. Includes online resource bank.
