Nurturing readers

Go here for a terrific post on how to kill a love of reading: http://www.brilliant-insane.com/2014/08/6-ways-teachers-kill-the-joy-of-reading.html?utm_content=bufferabe0f&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer

Now, consider making these five items positives.

1. Provide choice. Provide choice in reading materials and in how students will talk to you about their reading.

2. Build a community of readers within the classroom and in the school at large. Make everyone welcome. Keep giving invitations until you have them all in the community.

3. Model. Model. Model.
