Come learn strategies of how to motivate students to read fiction and informational texts. This session will focus on strategies for getting to know your students, being a reading role model, and digital book talks. Participants will learn about the complete reader from the work of Steven Layne. His argument is that students are taught content, but not always through the students’ interest, attitude, motivation, and engagement with reading. The participants will learn about interest inventories, self-assessments toward reading, and goal setting. The next strategy will be about being a reading role model. The trainer will share a book bingo that she can illustrate different genres as a game that challenges the reader. Hear stories from librarians and teachers of their success with Book Bingo.
New books will be presented as well as ways to use them in standards implementation, integrating units, motivating reluctant readers, character education, content area instruction and encouraging engaged, recreational readers- which pays off at testing time! Books will be appropriate for grades 5-8, grades 9-12, as well as professional growth. TESS components addressed for this workshop include: 1D, 3C
