To Create Readers, Share Your Reading Life With Students

no-more-reading-for-junk_mg5d9684In No More Reading for Junk, Linda Gambrell and Barbara Marinak provide research-based context for fostering children’s intrinsic motivation to read, and share some of the strategies and techniques that can transform disengaged readers into passionate ones.

Teachers are often naturally avid readers, but even if you aren't the sort of reader who is inclined to sit down with the latest best-selling novel, there are so many ways to share with students the authentic ways you engage with text in your daily life. "One of the key factors in motivating students to read," write Barbara and Linda, "is a teacher who values reading and is enthusiastic about sharing their reading with students."

In this video, the authors discuss some of the ways that you can continue to grow as a reader and share your passion for reading with students.
