The more I read about reading, the more I am convinced that this is THE key to the freedom, creativity, insight, and success of our learners. (I am not adding anything new to the argument).
So, I do not need to justify the short time we spend every Reading Workshop engaged in what Krashen calls SSR – sustained silent reading, reading for PLEASURE.
If only I could turn a reluctant reader into a reader…
So here are the books I have added to our class library.
I will order some more titles once I have got to know the passions of this year’s ELLs.
