9780545948715: Every Child a Super Reader: 7 Strengths to Open a World of Possible

Literacy experts Pam Allyn and Ernest Morrell maintain that when we build on children's key strengths and immerse them in an intellectually invigorating, emotionally nurturing, literature-rich community, we grow "super readers"―avid readers who consume texts with passion, understanding, and a critical eye.

Organized around the 7 Strengths inherent in super readers (belonging, curiosity, friendship, kindness, confidence, courage, and hope), this powerful resource helps children:

· Develop reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills

· Learn comprehension strategies

· Build a robust vocabulary

· Deepen analytical prowess and an ability to talk and write about text

· Develop empathy, a strong identity as a reader, and an expanded understanding of the world

Featuring stirring reading and writing lessons, robust assessment tools, ready-to-share Family Guides, and embedded videos that illuminate the 7 strengths and more, Every Child a Super Reader shows teachers, parents, caregivers, and out-of-school providers why reading is the ultimate super power, opening a world of possible for every student.

Review:

"It’s not overstatement: every (yes, every) child can be a self-propelled super reader. Allyn and Morrell provide you with the tips to turn your kids into readers for life. Hint: It involves great books!”
–James Patterson
 



“We know that it is essential to teach students reading knowledge, skills, and strategies explicitly, but too often we forget that it is also essential to develop students’ curiosity, compassion, courage, and other personal and social values. Allyn and Morrell remind us of this quite powerfully, with many concrete practices we can use in and outside of classrooms. Learn how powerful readers—and reading education—can become.”
 —Nell K. Duke, University of Michigan
 

"This remarkable book is an impassioned invocation to believe that every child can become not just a reader, but a super reader who can change the world through literacy. Pam Allyn and Ernest Morrell take us on a walk through seven core strengths that can open the world of possible for all children.”
 – Georgia Heard
 

"Two of the field’s most respected literacy educators introduce the concept of 'super reader,' a concept that needs to become part of our societal nomenclature. Their book contains kernels of wisdom for educators—guiding lights as we construct a world in which reading and young readers are deeply valued. The ultimate benefit is the potential kinship and connection that will be forged between those who teach reading and the children who will discover the power and promise of reading."
—Alfred W. Tatum
Dean, University of Illinois at Chicago, College of Education
 

"The concept of the Super Reader in this book focuses heavily on social environment and engagement. It encourages family, friends, peers and community to pitch in for ideas in this book to be fully realized. If you're expecting a self-taught learning experience for your child, you should look elsewhere.

The seven strengths include: belonging, curiosity, friendship, kindness, confidence, courage, and hope. The idea is once you get these themes ingrained in the child's mind, it will encourage the joy of reading and open dialogue with others to what they are reading.

The first part of the book focuses on the importance of community engagement and the themes or 7 strengths. The second part brings in some techniques for better reading incorporating ideas from the part one.

This book encourages the child to have opinions and question what they are reading and have open dialogue rather than an objective based system where they just look for the answer to the questions given to them.

The book is targeted at children who are in rough communities and minority children who's parents want them to catch up or even exceed those more privileged students with better resources to start, and the best approach according to this book is to have a community and family involvement to encourage better reading habits and a feedback loop for sharing ideas and concept for what the super reader is reading.

There are some tips and tricks in this book on how to excel at reading as well as some exercise which encourages critical and independent thinking. I'd say this book opens up a good foundation for readers to enjoy/interact with what they are reading, opening up potential for future success." --Vincent
