Guys Lit Wire: The Reader's Advisory Guide to Nonfiction

Guys Lit Wire: The Reader's Advisory Guide to Nonfiction | Readers Advisory For Secondary Schools | Scoop.it

"Neal Wyatt's book has chapters recommending books about sports, travel, true crime, true adventure, memoirs, history and biographies, 'general nonfiction', whatever that is, and so on. Science, mathematics, and nature writing are all dealt with in one chapter, as are food and cooking.

It was published in 2007, so you will not find the most recently published nonfiction in it. That is not a problem, in my opinion..."

Good review of this book, which goes on to demonstrate how the reviewer developed methods for updating.

The Inkys | Inside A Dog | Readers Advisory For Secondary Schools | Scoop.it
There is no other award in Australia that reflects what teenagers want to read. The Inkys are international awards for teenage literature, voted for online by the readers of insideadog.com.au. There are three awards: the Golden Inky for an Australian book, the Silver Inky for an international book, and the Creative Reading Prize, won by a young person for a creative response to a book they love, in any format they choose.

Reading Rants! Out of the Ordinary Teen Booklists!

Reading Rants! Out of the Ordinary Teen Booklists! | Readers Advisory For Secondary Schools | Scoop.it

"A website featuring out of the ordinary booklists for teens, written by Jennifer Hubert (that’s me!) and designed by Andrew Mutch that has been an online presence since 1998. In May 2007, Andrew transformed the original website into an interactive blog, where teens can not only respond to my reviews but write their own. Reading Rants also exists as a book for adult professionals who work with teens."

‘Reading Workshop’ Approach Lets Students Pick the Books - Series - NYTimes.com

‘Reading Workshop’ Approach Lets Students Pick the Books - Series - NYTimes.com | Readers Advisory For Secondary Schools | Scoop.it

This 2009 New York Times article features an English teacher using Reading Workshop in which students choose their own books, discuss them individually with their teacher and one another, and keep detailed journals about their reading. Reading Workshop is a method developed by Nancie Atwell, the author of “In the Middle” and “The Reading Zone,” popular guidebooks for teachers that promote giving students widespread choice. This approach to English teaching allows teachers to be really engaged in developing students as readers. [A similar strategy used in Australia is Clayton Massey's No Set Text Approach: http://bit.ly/r5aR6v ]
