When you include outside reading in your curriculum, you get the chance to inspire students, bond with them, and enjoy one of your greatest passions with them.
By starting a complementary outside reading program, you'll jump past frustrating conversations trying to persuade your administration of the power of free choice reading and get right to it. You don't have to choose between a class curriculum and free choice reading.
After presenting this information to a packed house at the California Association of English Teachers annual conference, I've decided to put together all the materials from my successful outside reading program in one place.
In this packet you'll find everything you need to start your own classroom library, launch a differentiated reading assignment in which students can read at their own levels, garner enthusiasm with reading posters and contests, use top 10 lists and book talks to help students come up with reading ideas, and start your own reading blog.
Here you'll find twenty-nine pages of attractively designed curriculum and detailed teacher instructions. For a preview of the types of books you'll soon see your students racing through, check out some of my past students' reading blogs at www.webbreads.blogspot.com and www.acsreads.blogspot.com.
