Why should I read Can your students answer that question Do they have trouble seeing the importance that reading may have in their lives Are they lacking motivation both in academic and recreational reading Do you think you can effectively teach reading strategies if students don t understand the benefits of literacy br br In em Reading Reasons em Kelly Gallagher offers a series of mini lessons specifically tailored to motivate middle and high school students to read and in doing so to help them understand the importance and relevance reading will take in their lives This book introduces and explains in detail nine specific real world reasons why students should be readers br br The book contains forty practical classroom tested and reproducible mini lessons that get to the heart of reading motivation and that can be used immediately in English as well as other content area classrooms These easy to use motivational lessons serve as weekly reading boostershots that help maintain reading enthusiasm in your classroom from September through June The mini lessons ranging from five to twenty minutes in length hit home with adolescents and in turn enable them to internalize the importance reading will play in their lives Rather than telling students reading is good for them the lessons in this book show them the benefits of reading, Do your students often struggle with difficult novels and other challenging texts Do they think one reading of a work is more than enough Do they primarily comprehend at a surface level and are they frequently unwilling or unable to discover the deeper meaning found in multi layered works Do you feel that you are doing more work teaching the novel than they are reading it br br Building on twenty years of teaching language arts Kelly Gallagher author of em Reading Reasons em shows how students can be taught to successfully read a broad range of challenging and difficult texts with deeper levels of comprehension In em Deeper Reading em Kelly shares effective classroom tested strategies that enable your students to accept the challenge of reading difficult books move beyond a first draft understanding of the text into deeper levels of reading consciously monitor their comprehension as they read employ effective fix it strategies when their comprehension begins to falter use meaningful collaboration to achieve deeper understanding of texts think metaphorically to deepen their reading comprehension reach deeper levels of reflection by understanding the relevance the book holds for themselves and their peers use critical thinking skills to analyze real world issues br br Kelly also provides guidance on effective lesson planning that incorporates strategies for deeper reading br br Funny poignant and packed with practical ideas that work in real classrooms em Deeper Reading em is a valuable resource for any teacher whose students need new tools to uncover the riches found in complex texts, What is in the best interest of our students Is it teaching to the newest standards movement like the Common Core Teaching that prepares students to take a test Or is it something more meaningful and authentic br In his new book i In the Best Interest of Students i Kelly Gallagher notes that there are real strengths in the Common Core standards and there are significant weaknesses as well He takes the long view reminding us that standards come and go but what remains constant is the need to stay true to what we know works in the teaching of reading writing speaking and listening Instead of blindly adhering to the latest standards movement Kelly advocates br br Dialing up the amount of reading and writing students are doing br Balancing rigorous high quality literature and non fiction with high interest student selected titles br Giving students much more choice when it comes to reading and writing activities br Encouraging readers to deepen their comprehension by moving beyond the four corners of the text br Using modeling to enrich students writing skills in the prewriting drafting and revision stages br Helping young writers to achieve more authenticity through the blending of genres br Resisting the de emphasis of narrative and imaginative reading and writing br Providing students with more opportunities to sharpen their listening and speaking skills br Planning lessons that move beyond Common Core expectations br br In this provocative and insightful new book Kelly surveys the teaching landscape since the publication of his highly regarded book i Readicide i and finds that although some progress has been made more needs to be done Amid the frenzy of trying to teach to a new set of standards Kelly Gallagher is a strong voice of reason reminding us that instruction should be anchored around one guiding question What is in the best interest of our students, In an increasingly demanding world of literacy it has become critical that students know how to write effectively From the requirements of standardized tests to those of the wired workplace the ability to write well once a luxury has become a necessity Many students are leaving school without the necessary writing practice and skills needed to compete in a complex and fast moving Information Age Unless we teach them how to run with it they are in danger of being run over by a stampede a
