- Picture Books -

This strategy is designed to help teachers recognize that many picture books are appropriate for use in the middle school or secondary classroom.



Select a picture book that could be used with upper elementary, middle school, or secondary students.

Develop a rationale for using it with older students. (Why it could be used?)

How is the picture book format an effective one?

How do the text and illustrations complement each other? How?

What book or type of books could you bridge this with?

How might you use it?
