Yes, yes, yes! My read of your article comes at a time when I'm grappling with the interpretations of reading complexity being fielded in my system/building that seem to take a very narrow view of the notion.

I take your words to heart, along with your thoughtful exemplars and samples including the inspirational Google Art Project. (I think Norman Rockwell's paintings are quite evocative and have found them useful in generating student discussion and narrative creation.) As I review, reflect on, and revamp my attempts to lay a foundation for text analysis with my 2nd graders...yes, I said 2nd graders, I will keep this article in mind and, I'm sure, return to it often.
