Calkins says:
"In order for students to become successful readers, they must read frequently and they must read for extended period of time."
"Students must be given decision making power about what they will read."
Allington says:
"The only effective ways to improve reading achievement are to:
Increase actual reading and writing activity.
Select more appropriate texts and tasks.
Enhance useful strategy instruction."
Avery says:
"No two children learn to read with the same timing and with identical strategies. No two readers appreciate the same reading material or read at the same pace."

not the reading!
Students must
have input in
what they read!
Teach students
what good
readers do!
Give students time
to practice

Have you read every book in your library?
Conference with your friend Google.
How do you know if your students are really reading?
Read their responses, look at their log for minutes, keep up with conferences using an app or notes
Where do you get books?
Grants, Scholastic, McKays (Nashville)
How do you plan lessons?
Begin with the end in mind. Start with the standard, choose an assement and mentor text to MODEL. Build an anchor chart.
Do students get to choose their books for literature circles?
ABSOLUTELY! Take into account their choice, text complexity, ability, dynamics of group.

9 weeks of Jackie's conferences
1-2 book choice conferences
1-2 reading log conferences
1 SMART goal setting session,
1 story retell/book discussion (Comprehension check)
1 fluency check
1 readers response notebook check

How I plan:

Look at the standard (look above and below!)

Determine how I will assess student progress towards a standard. CREATE ASSESSMENT.

Find a mentor text to model, plan anchor chart.
Lesson day 1 Model, make anchor chart with students, have students practice in groups, then partners and finally independently.

***Constructivist model! I do it, we do it, you do it.
