Most educators recognize the importance of home-school connections, especially for the development of engaged and enthusiastic readers. When the home is involved, both reading achievement and children's love for reading increase. Moreover, when successful home-school connections are made and maintained, parents and teachers come to a greater appreciation and understanding of the role of the other. Making a home-school reading connection is a win-win-win situation--for readers, for parents and other family members, and for teachers.
Motivating Recreational Reading and Promoting Home-School Connections: Strategies From The Reading Teacher presents the "best of the best" classroom-tested ideas and approaches for increasing student motivation for reading and for developing and maintaining home involvement in reading. The articles in this volume have been drawn from the Teaching Reading department of The Reading Teacher from 1993-1999; this section of the journal is devoted to practical reading instruction strategies for classrooms, reading clinics, and homes. The articles have been compiled by Timothy Rasinski and Nancy Padak, editors of The Reading Teacher from 1993-1999, and their team of associate editors.
