The new edition of Still Learning to Read focuses on the needs of students in Years 3–6 in all aspects of reading workshop, including read-aloud, classroom design, digital tools,
fiction, nonfiction and close reading. The book stays true to its original beliefs of slowing down and knowing our readers, but it also takes into account the sense of urgency that changing times and standards impose on classrooms.
This edition examines current trends in literacy, includes a new section on intentional instructional planning, and provides expanded examples of mini-lessons and routines that promote deeper thinking about learning. It also includes a brand new chapter on scaffolding for reading nonfiction and showcases the authors’ latest thinking on close reading and text complexity. Online videos provide glimpses into classrooms as students make book choices, work in small groups and discuss their reading notebooks. Expanded and updated book lists, recommendations for digital tools, lesson cycles and sections specifically written for school leaders round out this foundational resource.
