Over a decade ago, Jeffrey Whilhelm's groundbreaking book showed educators how to think of reading as a personally meaningful, pleasurable and productive pursuit. In the 13 years since its publication, the author has experimented with, and further developed all of the techniques he first explored in You Gotta Be the Book, including visual techniques, drama and action strategies, think-aloud protocols, and symbolic story representation/reading manipulatives. In this new expanded edition, Whilhelm adds a commentary to each chapter in which he reflects on the research and insights he introduced in his now-classic text.
