  • 1. GETTING TWEENS CONNECTED TO BOOKS AND READING WITH DR. TERI LESESNE Naked Reading
  • 2. WITH THE BOOKS ON THE TWO TRAIN BY SOME ANONYMOUS STUDENTS To the woman, we think you’re a teacher,
  • 3.
    • On the platform for the 2 train
    • you stand with a book in your hand
    • the pages open
    • Which is how you enter the train
    • Reading
    •  
    • Sometimes you smile, or frown
    • Once you even cried
    • on the train
    • when you were reading Night
    • and a man sitting across the aisle
    • said he cried too, when he read that book
    • and we thought,
    • we want to read that book
    • so we did
  • 4.
    • And then you were reading all those
    • basketball books
    • by Walter Dean Myers
    • so we read those too
    • speeding along on the 2 train
    • one time you saw us reading Slam
    • and you said
    • I love that book
    • and do you think Slam is going to make it in high
    • school?
    • We do, we think he’s going to make it
  • 5.
    • Then you were reading some really hard stuff
    • Epistemology of the Closet , Postmodern Narrative
    • Theory
    • and we tried those, but we think you have to have read
    • the books those authors have read, if you want to read
    • their books
    •  
    • Our favorite is when you are reading poetry
    • Picnic , Lightning
    • and you lean back against the seat
    • and smile
    • and keep reading the same page
    • again and again
    • we do that now and it’s really nice
  • 6.
    • Last week you were reading The Life of Pi
    • and we rushed out to buy it
    • So we could be in the lifeboat
    • adrift in the blue, blue sea
    • with the boy, the Bengal Tiger, and you
    •  
    • If we don’t see you next year
    • on the train
    • Maybe sometime we’ll bump into each other on the
    • platform
    • You’ll know us because
    • we’ll have books in our hands
  • 7. MATCHES NEED TO BE MADE DELIBERATELY AND, WE HOPE, SUCCESSFULLY But we cannot leave it up to chance
  • 8.
  • 9. “ People are so desperate to raise test scores that we could well end up with a nation of kids who can pass tests but can neither read critically nor enjoy the act of reading itself.” P. DAVID PEARSON NEA TODAY, 2004
