What you do as a reader in your head.   

Each unit will be accompanied with the teaching of skills. Students will be encouraged to apply these skills when reading. But more importantly, students will be encouraged to think about, and wonder about what they are reading. They will be asked to collaborate with other students about what they are thinking and what they have gleaned from the work of various authors.
