The TIM associates five levels of technology integration (i.e., entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation) with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments. Together, the five levels of technology integration and the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments create a matrix of 25 cells. Reading Workshop Strategies.

With a little guidance and encouragement from a teacher who loves to read, students can learn to select appropriate books and discover joy in reading.
