Now Online: Reading Wellness

August 28th, 2014

How can you intentionally help your students find balance and purposeful direction in their reading lives–weaving together reading for relaxation, informational reading, reading for meaning, fluency, and selecting texts–to become their best reading selves?

In their new book, Reading Wellness, Jan Burkins and Kim Yaris take you beyond reading strategies to give you specific ways to support your students’ enjoyment, perseverance, risk-taking, and connection-making as readers.

Anchored by four key intentions–alignment, balance, sustainability, and joy–Jan and Kim offer field-tested lessons, organizers, book lists, and other practical ways to teach reading skills while instilling the long-term attitudes and habits that your students need to become lifelong readers.

Reading Wellness will inspire you to stay connected to your broader vision of students as readers as you address the external requirements of educational standards. Preview the entire book online now!

    Thank you for making this book available to read online for free. I read about this book in a blog last night, checked it out and could not put it down. Once in awhile a book finds its way into your reading life at just the right time. This book speaks to the heart of every reading teacher who is struggling with what they know is best practice for students and with the standardized,sterile and robotic teaching politicians and big bussiness are promoting. The authors offer practical solutions on how to bridge best practices in reading with standardized standards. They remind us why we became and continue to be teachers .
