One of the most challenging and rewarding parts of being a teacher is not just imparting knowledge, but creating thinkers. That's why we so appreciate being in a classroom where teachers like Carrie are doing just that, moving students past surface level responses to deeper thinking.

Carrie's higher readers are quick to identify if the authors purpose is to persuade, entertain, inform, or explain, however, they aren't really able to go further. She is looking for a way to move them to deeper thinking and an ability to articulate and record what they discover about the message an author has for them.
