Igniting a Passion for Reading
Successful Strategies for Building Lifetime Readers
When teaching reading, educators often focus exclusively on skills instruction. But how can you teach the “skill” without the “will”? In his new book, Igniting a Passion for Reading, Steven Layne shows teachers how to develop readers who not only are motivated to read great books but who also love reading in its own right. Packed with practical ways to engage and inspire readers from Foundation Year to high school, this book is a must-have on every teacher’s professional bookshelf.
In this book, overflowing with practical strategies and “From the Trenches” anecdotes, Steven Layne – well known for his award-winning children’s books and young adult novels, as well as for powerful key-note speeches he’s delivered across the US and around the world – offers teachers everywhere a plan for engaging even the most reluctant reader. From detailed preview lessons and book shopping to reading lounges and “status of the class” sessions, this book will help schools create a vibrant reading culture. The book also includes reminiscences from many of today’s well-known children’s and young adult authors – Mem Fox, Steven Kellogg, Sharon Draper, Candace Fleming, Eric Rohmann, Neal Shusterman, Joan Bauer and more – about the teacher or librarian who ignited their passion for reading.
Written with humour, grace and poignancy, Igniting a Passion for Reading will have a profound effect on the teaching of reading in classrooms all over the world.
