  • More about the how than the why – I always see students torturing themselves over reading – dictionaries, bent over, highlighters, scrunched up faces. They would groan when they saw two pages.
  • Student ran into the door while reading . . Showed up with a band-aid on her forehead!
  • Our reading textbook – like any textbook
  • Intensive reading – dense – factual, usu. Nonfiction – all good for academic study
  • Lots of choices
  • This is what I was going for instead – ESL readers – lots of them
  • Something about picking up a book and holding it, paging through it cover to cover
  • So this is the difference – see website for research on extensive reading – we need both – but students don’t often get both in their classes.The reality turns out to be that they read more than those four.Creating life-long readers.
  • Done as journals and group discussion
  • In China, a child whose parents own 500 books will average 6.6 more years in education than a comparable child from a bookless age.
  • Model book club behaviorHigh-interest – show them they can read it and they can read a lot.
  • I model and am excited? I read too – I’m not reading something else that is harder. I want to show them that reading is enjoyable at any level.
  • Groups do on their own
  • They trade/exchange, want more, read more

    19. 19. Book 1 – Whole Class Ikuko goes to England to study, promising to return to Japan to get married. But in Birmingham, Ikuko not only discovers another way of life but also a great deal about herself. This is a powerful story about a love that is carried across three continents and even time itself.
    20. 20. Ikuko wondered if she was making aterrible mistake. “It’s only for six months,” shesaid to Hiroshi, trying to persuade herself asmuch as him. “A lot can happen in six months,” hesaid. “I don’t want to lose you. Remember youpromised to come back.” Ikuko looked at her ring. “I’ll comeback,” she said. They said goodbye, but as she wentthrough to the departure lounge she lookedback one last time. Hiroshi was standing there,his hair falling into his eyes, looking lost andlonely in the middle of the airport crowds.
