Let's face it...we do not really know someone until we have a genuine conversation with them. Then why not apply this knowledge into our teaching practices?
Helping our young readers become "real" readers, or lifelong readers, is a very difficult process, but it can be done in such simple ways you can incorporate each and everyday.
The first step to helping your students find their reading love is to talk to them about it. This may take some time, but you will get the best results when you spend a little one-on-one time with each of your students. (Don't think of it as a do-it-all-in-one-day activity. Take your time interviewing your students and getting to know them as readers.)
This interview was designed to provide you with a true look into how your students think and feel about reading. With 10 simple questions you can cut to the heart of each child's emotional and intellectual experiences with reading. The interview was designed to provide you with valuable insight into ways to provide each of your students with all they need to become "real" readers.
