The Reluctant Reader by Heather Cato

The Reluctant Reader by Heather Cato | reading | Scoop.it

"I know it’s not a contest or anything, but I bet that when I began teaching language arts I had read fewer books of any kind than any other language arts teacher in the history of public education. I never liked reading as a kid, but I can vividly remember the first time I took my students down to our antique, two-sizes-too small library to check out books. With the signatures on my diploma still wet, I was excited to begin working with my students on all of the great teaching strategies that I had learned in college to improve their reading skills..."

EDUCATION WEEK QUESTION: Is the Teaching of Reading Skills Dying in our Schools?

Asks Joe Kingsley Eyiah, OCT, Brookview M. S., Toronto-Canada

Did you know that READING can keep your mind active and engaged well into old age? Reading is considered one of the best habits that one can inculcate in him/her. It leads one to knowledge! 
The old Good Book says that ‘for lack of knowledge my people perish’. Yes, knowledge is power. Though knowledge comes to us in many forms, it best comes in the pages of a book. However, we won’t know until we read what is written in the pages. Therefore reading is the key to knowledge. It is said that the one who reads is a leader!
As a parent and a teacher by profession I can’t overemphasize the importance of reading to the teaching and learning process.

"No entertainment is so cheap as reading, nor any pleasure so lasting. She will not want new fashions nor regret the loss of expensive diversions or variety of company if she can be amused with an author in her closet."

— Lady Montagu, providing advice on raising her granddaughter, 1752

With Common  Core testing approaching close reading in an area that we know students will need to know well. This post provides many resources.

Are you looking for resources on the basic components of close reading? Find links to information on complex short text, pre-reading activities, re-reading of text, annotations, text-dependent questions, peer collaboration and response to text. Check out a visual on text complexity, one on annotation techniques and one on text-dependent questions.

Additional materials are also available.

Reading: Literature Circles

Reading: Literature Circles | reading | Scoop.it

Literature Circles have been around forever. Done well, the strategy is an effective way of engaging children in reading, while teaching them specific skills and behaviours we use when immersing ourselves in a text. With clear foci during the instructional part of the Literature Circle session, teachers can direct children to use these strategies to improve their comprehension and how they respond to text.

Reading skills improving thanks to schools scheme
Wednesday, October 10, 2012South Wales Evening PostFollow
THOUSANDS of young people have "significantly improved" their reading skills, thanks to a schools programme aimed at improving literacy.

More than 2,000 young people who have received two school terms of Eight Reading Behaviours teaching were tested and all were found to have improved reading skills.

The pupils, aged eight to 14, were tested last December and again in June this year to discover their reading age, which had improved by more than expected.

Stephanie Vaughan, Swansea Council's English and literacy advisor to schools, said: "We have changed the way teachers work with children and have encouraged parents to read at home in different ways.

"Before some children were able to learn and recite words from the page of a book but did not understand what those words or phrases actually meant, giving them little educational benefit.

Encouraging

"The Eight Reading Behaviours are easy to understand strategies to make children more active readers.

"They can include encouraging children to picture the text in their head, to ask questions and to make suggestions about what is happening in the story. They help pupils better understand what's on the page in front of them.

"Pupils are given the skills to read independently and encouraged to become critical readers, who can make judgements, form opinions and read between the lines. They are also able to select and summarise information.

"This way pupils enjoy reading more and read in ways which help them t
