Has anyone heard of guided reading and/or bibliotherapy? One of my graduate school professors is a big proponent and expert of this, and once I learned more about it, I realized I'd been doing it my whole life. A teacher or mentor helps select reading material that a student may have a meaningful connection to; during and after the student's reading, teacher leads student to talk about how he/she felt while reading, what issues it brought up, and how it can help the student cope with his/her issues. Well, that's it in a nutshell.
