BHH READING PDF

My sister shared BHH Reading with me over the summer. BHH stands for book, head, heart and its purpose is to think about the text and apply it. In a time where standardized testing is the end-all of learning, tear, BHH is a breath of fresh air to teach students how to critically think and analyze test. B or in the BOOK refers to reading the text responsibly, H or in your HEAD refers to the thinking processes that take place when reading, and H or in your HEART relates to the emotional response; making personal connections that can change a person and give reading a purpose, inspiring a desire to read more.  This is an excellent article describing BHH and applying the strategy in the upper grades. 

Since I teach the lower grades, I'll be using BHH in its bare-bones. So I created a BHH Reading PDF for you to use in your classroom. All you need to do is download the PDF here and print.

Reading is transformative. Using the BHH strategy is a great way to make text come alive and apply it to our lives in our minds, hearts, and ultimately actions.
