Here's one approach into more complex texts and the thinking they require. Enjoy courtesy of ASCD Smartbrief!!

Object monologues help students approach complex texts
The writers of this blog post suggest a lesson in which teachers use drama to teach core academic subjects. In one exercise, students select an object and complete a monologue on the history of the object. The activity helps students to approach complicated texts and pick up specific details. The monologue also may encourage students to ask additional questions and complete research. The New York Times (tiered subscription model)/The Learning Network blog (8/9)
