Have You Read…?June 23, 2006 at 5:28 pm | Posted in uncategorized | 26 Comments
Sharing books you've read for pleasure or those related to your subject area with your students addresses the following:
- Allows your students to see you modeling reading for pleasure.
- Connects you with your students on a more personal level.
- Helps to create a reading community within your classroom.
- Introduces your students to books they might not discover on their own.
Reflect on the book you read for pleasure. Include the title and author, a brief summary, favorite part, and any recommendations. Check the replies of others in the class to see if you have already read one of the titles or are now interested in reading one of the books.
