Journal Quote—Last One for Our Reading Theme (Reflection Day Tomorrow)
“When we write, we compose thoughts on paper.  When we read, we compose meaning in our minds.  Thoughtful, active readers use the text to stimulate their own thinking and to engage wit the mind of the writer.  Readers construct and maintain understanding by merging their thinking with the text.  They have an ongoing inner conversation with the author as they read, a dialogue of sorts where the reader engages with and talks back to the writer throughout their reading.”  (STW; Harvey and Goudvis)
