How Old is Too Old to Read Aloud to Your Students?

NNTBT_NoMoreReading4Junk_1Students love choice. That's why giving students the power to choose books for independent reading, teacher read-aloud and classroom libraries makes them much more engaged and motivated readers.

In No More Reading for Junk, authors Barbara Marinak and Linda Gambrell provide teachers with research-based context for fostering reading motivation in children, as well as strategies and techniques proven to transform students into passionate, lifelong readers.

"We want to continue reading to students out loud for as long as they'll let us," says Barbara. In the following video, the authors discuss the importance of reading aloud to students, and how allowing your students to vote on the read-aloud book greatly increases excitement and participation.
