Summary, etc.:
"Kylene Beers and Bob Probst showed teachers how to help students become close readers. Now, in Disrupting thinking they take teachers a step further and discuss an on-going problem: lack of engagement with reading. They explain that all too often, no matter the strategy shared with students, too many students remain disengaged and reluctant readers. The problem, they suggest, is that we have misrepresented to students why we read and how we ought to approach any text, fiction or nonfiction"--Publisher's website.
