Embedded Readings–General

Embedded Readings

There are a number of ways to create embedded readings.  They may be from the bottom up which may begin with just 2-3 words and which you and students develop over many days into multiple embbedded versions of a final and complex story.  They may be from the top down where you begin in your preparation with a story that you want them to ultimately read but for which you create several easier versions of the story each of which is embedded in the next one.  Laurie Clarcq’s website is an excellent source for these and other approaches to embedded readings.
