Wow, I haven't blogged in forever! Between a student teacher, Career Ladders ( a hoop-jumping portfolio that is evaluated by other teachers every year) and life, I haven't had the time. I'm sure you've felt that way before, am I right?
I did want to stop in quickly today to share an amazing, inspiring book I just read about developing life long readers. The Book Whisperer examines current reading instruction in public schools and challenges teachers to redefine their beliefs about teaching reading. Although the author is a 6th grade teacher, the book will touch a reading teacher of any grade. I highly recommend buying or borrowing this book. I just completed a book study with some teachers at my school and we all absolutely loved it! It's such an easy read but will offer many thought provoking alternatives to traditional reading instruction that will engage and inspire your own students.
Check it out on Amazon here! Let me know if you have read it or have been inspired to read it.
Happy reading and teaching!
