This lesson, from ReadWriteThink, details the five expressive and performative engagements for responding to text, as identified by Lawrence R. Sipe. A reference sheet lists each engagement and provides an explanation. While specific read-alouds are used throughout this lesson, the instructional techniques and activities can be adapted for any read-aloud storybook. Extension activities also provide additional opportunities for students to engage with and respond to texts.
