Readicide: How Schools Are Killing Reading and What You Can Do About It

Read-i-cide-n: The systematic killing of the love of reading. Reading is dying in our schools. The standard instructional practices used in most schools are killing reading by:·valuing the development of test-takers over the development of lifelong readers ·requiring students to read difficult texts without proper instructional support ·insisting that students focus solely on academic texts ·ignoring the importance of developing recreational reading; and ·losing sight of authentic instruction in the shadow of political pressures. Readicide provides teachers, literacy coaches, and administrators with specific steps to reverse the downward spiral in reading steps that will help prevent the loss of another generation of readers.

The Book Whisperer by Donalyn Miller

Donalyn Miller says she has yet to meet a child she couldn't turn into a reader. No matter how far behind Miller's students might be when they reach her 6th grade classroom, they end up reading an average of 40 to 50 books a year. Miller's unconventional approach dispenses with drills and worksheets that make reading a chore. Instead, she helps students navigate the world of literature and gives them time to read books they pick out themselves. Her love of books and teaching is both infectious and inspiring. The book includes a dynamite list of recommended "kid lit" that helps parents and teachers find the books that students really like to read.
