Product Description
Help students choose novels for independent reading with this activity. Great to use at the beginning of the school year, this activity uses a strategy called IRA in which students evaluate their book choices by interest, readability, and appropriateness.

This also includes a post-reading activity in which each student writes a "Tease to Read" to pique the interest of his classmates. This nine page product includes procedures, teacher notes and considerations for grading, activity handout, a sample “tease to read,” student guide, and book record. In the model, students are enticed to read The Cellist of Sarajevo by Canadian author Steven Galloway.

Unfortunately, Kelly Gallagher, author of Readicide, has contended that many schools are unwittingly killing the love of reading. However, by giving students choices and implementing Silent Sustained Reading, secondary English teachers and literacy coaches have the power to change the decline in reading with activities like this one.
