However, research suggests that pre-readers (or struggling readers) have a natural ability to think critically, challenge ideas and pose thoughtful questions.

This session explores useful book titles, discussion techniques, and questioning skills (for both students and teachers). As Pablo Freire asserts, it is never too early to plant the seeds of inquiry and develop thoughtful, active citizens!
