  4. 4. Today<br />Read Chapter 2: Creating Enthusiastic, Independent Readers<br />Vision for our readers:<br />Readers who can read independently: fluently and with comprehension.<br />Readers who can write and talk about what they read. <br />Readers who can read fairly quickly and accurately, freeing up cognitive energy to concentrate on the meaning of the text, ultimately talking and writing about the text.<br />Groups:<br />We know that the amount of reading kids do is highly correlated with how well they read. This chapter discusses two reading formats: read aloud and independent reading. So, how do you go about making sure that kids spent a lot of time actually engaged in reading and writing?<br />How much should they read independently?<br />What is the big deal about conferencing with kids about their reading?<br />What about rewarding kids for reading (see box on page 24)?<br />What was really important in this chapter?<br />What stuck out to you?<br />What are your favorite strategies or activities?<br />
