Issue Theme: Grand Conversations across Texts
School Talk April 2008
In this issue of School Talk, Karen Smith, Sarah Diaz, and Silvia Edgerton bring the ideas of purposefulness and intertextuality together in an approach that expands our thinking about students’ meaning-making processes as they engage in “grand conversations” across a set of related texts. Smith provides some background information, and Diaz and Edgerton show us how such an approach works in their classrooms.
