#OrlandoStrong by Anne Lee | Young Adult Novels | Scoop.it
  I find myself on a plane on a day of another national tragedy. In 2001,  I was on an early flight from Orlando to New York which circled the Twin Towers trying to land in LaGuardia while one tower smoked in the distance, just hours later to fall.   This time it took place…

How “Girl Books” Could Save the World (Or At Least Help Out!) by Jen Malone

How “Girl Books” Could Save the World (Or At Least Help Out!) by Jen Malone | Young Adult Novels | Scoop.it
I doubt it will surprise any Nerds that a recent study offered definitive proof that readers of fiction tend to score higher on tests measuring empathy and interpersonal sensitivity, and are better equipped to interpret emotional cues. In short, fiction readers are superior at “human-ing.”   These findings make so much sense to me, because…

Revving Up Student Thinking with Choice and the Reading Un-Frenzy

Revving Up Student Thinking with Choice and the Reading Un-Frenzy | Young Adult Novels | Scoop.it
Last year, Jennifer Lund and I had the pleasure of doing a reading frenzy with Language Arts teacher Sean O'Connor and his students.   The concept of a reading frenzy comes from teacher and speaker Nancy Steineke.  The basic premise of the activity is to give students a series of texts, allow them to skim and…

Everyone that knows me, knows my passion for book clubs. My friend Stacey lovingly refers me to me as the “Book Club Queen.” Although, I make no claims at being the queen of anything!

The Reluctant Reader by Heather Cato

The Reluctant Reader by Heather Cato | Young Adult Novels | 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..."

 

SOOOO important!!!

Sailing Oceans of Story by Padma Venkatraman | Young Adult Novels | Scoop.it
Once upon a time, there lived a little girl who loved words. She traveled through the pages of books to places she’d never seen, and although none of the heroes or heroines she met looked anything like her, and even though many of those heroes or heroines were narrow-minded enough she probably wouldn’t have wanted…

Intrinsic Gimmicks by Brett Vogelsinger | Young Adult Novels | Scoop.it

Let Kids Read by Sergio Ruzzier | Young Adult Novels | Scoop.it
As a kid, I was not what was considered a good reader. That doesn't mean I didn't like books. In fact, I loved books, but only the ones with a lot of pictures: picture books and comic books. The "long"   books, with no or very few illustrations, looked to me incredibly boring and difficult, and…

English and social studies lend themselves too conveniently to reading and writing with historical fiction and writing with document based questioning.

Here, we outline six elements of instruction that every child should experience every day. Each of these elements can be implemented in any district and any school, with any curriculum or set of materials, and without additional funds.
