Educators must be able to engage with readers at every
level. They must also be able to evaluate where each student lies on the
continuum and improve students’ skills to bring them to the appropriate level.
Engaging Young Readers
is a beginner-level guide focusing on developmental
reading strategies for elementary students at all stages and exploring how
technology can be used to improve the skills of a wide range of readers,
including beginning readers, struggling readers, reluctant readers, enriched
readers and English Language Learners (ELLs).
Topics covered include:
- Using music as an instructional tool
- Choral reading and read alouds
- Graphic organizers
- Dramatic learning and literature circles
- Writing workshops
- And much more!
This book gives teachers the strategies and technology they need to meet
their students where they are in their reading ability so they can move forward
in their personalized skill development.
