Course DescriptionThis course takes an in-depth look at powerful yet unconventional instructional reading approaches. The author discards book reports, comprehension worksheets, and other aspects of conventional instruction. The author gives students individual choice in what they read combined with an independent reading program. Building a classroom library of high-interest books, and modeling appropriate and authentic reading behaviors are essentials of developing motivated readers. Using this approach, students read more, achieve high scores on standardized tests, and internalize a love for reading. This course helps teachers to support students of all levels on their path to reading success. It also includes a comprehensive list of books students love most, enabling students to discover the rewards of reading and literature. For grades 3 and up.
