Reading in the Wild : The Book Whisperer's Keys to Cultivating Lifelong Reading Habits, Paperback by Miller, Donalyn; Kelley, Susan (CON); Lesesne, Teri S. (FRW)
Continues the conversation the author began with The Book Whisperer: Awakening the Inner Reader in Every Child, which presented an authentic picture of a free-choice reading workshop classroom. This book will address the more practical aspects of running a classroom that allows for free-choice reading, including lesson plans, management tools, resources, and tips for working with students who still won't read. Presents advice and strategies on how to encourage and assess 8 lifelong reading habits: 1. dedicating time for reading, 2. self-selecting reading material, 3. sharing books and reading experiences with other readers, 4. planning for future reading, 5. responding authentically to text, 6. showing preferences for genres, authors, and books, 7. valuing reading as a leisure activity, and 8. defining oneself as a reader.
In Reading in the Wild , reading expert Donalyn Miller continues the conversation that began in her bestselling book, The Book Whisperer . While The Book Whisperer revealed the secrets of getting students to love reading, Reading in the Wild , written with reading teacher Susan Kelley, describes how to truly instill lifelong "wild" reading habits in our students. Based, in part, on survey responses from adult readers as well as students, Reading in the Wild offers solid advice and strategies on how to develop, encourage, and assess five key reading habits that cultivate a lifelong love of reading. Also included are strategies, lesson plans, management tools, and comprehensive lists of recommended books. Copublished with Editorial Projects in Education, publisher of Education Week and Teacher magazine, Reading in the Wild is packed with ideas for helping students build capacity for a lifetime of "wild" reading. "When the thrill of choice reading starts to fade, it's time to grab Reading in the Wild . This treasure trove of resources and management techniques will enhance and improve existing classroom systems and structures." -- Cris Tovani , secondary teacher, Cherry Creek School District, Colorado, consultant, and author of Do I Really Have to Teach Reading? "With Reading in the Wild , Donalyn Miller gives educators another important book. She reminds us that creating lifelong readers goes far beyond the first step of putting good books into kids' hands." -- Franki Sibberson , third-grade teacher, Dublin City Schools, Dublin, Ohio, and author of Beyond Leveled Books " Reading in the Wild , along with the now legendary The Book Whisperer , constitutes the complete guide to creating a stimulating literature program that also gets students excited about pleasure reading, the kind of reading that best prepares students for understanding demanding academic texts. In other words, Donalyn Miller has solved one of the central problems in language education." -- Stephen Krashen , professor emeritus, University of Southern California
