Description

From students who need help with their English-language skills, to students applying to prestigious universities, to students diagnosed with ADHD, to the “average” student reader, teenagers need guidance and encouragement to improve their reading skills. And in this high-tech world that offers kids so many more immediate and insistent distractions and narratives, books often lose the race for attention unless teachers make a point of modeling and explicitly focusing on good reading skills and the joys of reading. This book presents a collection of essays that offer numerous practical teaching ideas for helping students increase their vocabulary and comprehension as well as learn to love the medium of books. Useful ideas revolve around issues such as guided reading, independent reading, making authentic reading-writing connections, literature circles, reading intervention, reading aloud, vocabulary exploration, mentoring, and picture books in high school. Several chapters describe specific programs designed to aid struggling readers, including those who read and write English as a second language.
144 pp. 2001. Grades 7–12. ISBN 0-8141-5186-8.
