    • She walked into my office on legs as long as one of those long-legged birds that you see in Florida - the pink ones, not the white ones - except that she was standing on both of them, not just one of them, like those birds, the pink ones, and she wasn't wearing pink, but I knew right away that she was trouble, which those birds usually aren't.
    • Towards the dragon's lair the fellowship marched -- a noble human prince, a fair elf, a surly dwarf, and a disheveled copyright attorney who was frantically trying to find a way to differentiate this story from "Lord of the Rings."
    • On a fine summer morning during the days of the Puritans, the prison door in the small New England town of B----n opened to release a convicted adulteress, the Scarlet Letter A embroidered on her dress, along with the Scarlet Letters B through J, a veritable McGuffey's Reader of Scarlet Letters, one for each little tyke waiting for her at the gate.

    • More than titles
      Guiding Readers
    • From Heinemann
    • The goal?
      Creating stronger and more independent readers
    • If we don’t…
      Who or what will?
    • If AR is in charge…
    • More AR stats
    • High School
    • So, let’s take charge

      Readers make meaning (Louise Rosenblatt) from the text. However, they need to know how to negotiate the text FOR meaning.
    • Must use illustrations for some of the meaning for the story. Vygotsky calls this scaffolding. But GNs are perfect for ELL, dyslexic, struggling readers, low vocab students.
      GN for young readers
    • Concrete poetry also has scaffolding.
      Note that this book could belong to many different reading ladfders (poetry, humor)
      Poetry that appeals
    • Wordsong/Boyds Mills
    • "Brevity gets right to the point
      doesn't dawdle, dicker, or delay
      always short and sweet whenever
      there is something to do
      or say
      brevity comes in handy when you
      are subject to a chewing out
      a bout of the flu
      a pain in the neck
      or waiting in line for the loo
      in fact, this poem has gone on so long
      that its recital
      would no longer qualify
      as an example of its title"

      There are many ways to describe Ms. Underdorf.
       
      She was brilliant and joyous, and she believed-probably correctly-that libraries contain the answers to everything, and that if you can’t find the information you seek in the library, then such information probably does not exist in this or any other parallel universe now or ever to be known.
       
      She was thoughtful and kind and always believed the best of everybody. She was, above all else, a master librarian and knew where to find any book on any subject in the shortest possible time.
       
      And she was wonderfully unhinged…
       
      And so the Amazing Armadillo.
