9780325028149: Middle School Readers: Helping Them Read Widely, Helping Them Read Well

"When I finished Middle School Readers I wanted to reverse time and relive sixth grade as a student in Nancy Allison's class. Allison takes us into her own unique brand of reading workshop, providing the finest road map for teachers. Ultimately, what Allison communicates is that to help students read fiction and nonfiction, to refine their knowledge of genre structure and reading strategies, we must engage in conversations with students that lead them to independence." Laura Robb, Author of Teaching Middle School Writers

"Students need language arts classrooms where the shelves are filled with engaging fiction and nonfiction texts--and where their teacher's main responsibility is to support their growth as readers. They deserve to be respected and supported as they work their way through self-selected texts." Nancy Allison

Nancy Allison shows how to provide the choice adolescents crave with the guidance they need-and she does this all with instructional and organizational strategies that make this infinitely manageable. In describing how to teach middle school students to read widely and well, Nancy presents:

  • the daily routines of an effective reading workshop with ideas for developing a robust classroom library
  • tips for cultivating independent readers and matching students to just-right books
  • her unique brand of deskside conferences with examples of how they can be used to differentiate instruction and motivate disengaged readers
  • strategies for teaching comprehension in fiction and nonfiction texts
  • techniques for assessing and evaluating independent readers.

Plus! A built-in study guide makes this an ideal book for professional book study.
