  1. 1. The Book Whisperer http://prezi.com/eba9q0ivw3jm/the-book-whisperer/
  2. 2. How to Accelerate a Reader -- by Donalyn Miller http://blogs.edweek.org/teachers/book_whisperer/2010/09/reading_rewarded_part_ii.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed %3A+TheBookWhisperer+%28Teacher+Magazine+Blog%3A+The+Book+Whisperer%29
  3. 3. Abundant reading research proves that the following components of an independent reading program increase students' reading achievement and motivation to read: •Access to books: Students need access to a wide array of reading materials at their independent level. •Time to read: Students need consistent, daily time to read at school. •Reading engagement: Students need classroom conditions that engage them with reading and foster reading self-efficacy. •School-wide support: Schools must create a culture of reading that values reading in all subject areas. •Well-stocked libraries with qualified librarians: School library collections should contain current, well-maintained collections of interesting reading material manned by trained, licensed librarians. •Student choice: Students need frequent opportunities to select their own reading materials for both personal and academic reasons.
  4. 4. In order to make these programs work, schools must invest in books for students to read and teacher training in best practices. You could do this without spending thousands of dollars on reading management software. The value added by such programs is not research-proven on a large scale and does not justify the expense.
  5. 5. Teachers and librarians do not need wide knowledge about children's literature in order to run the program. For some school districts, this factor may seem like a positive quality, but would you want your child in a school where the literacy leaders did not know much about books? There are no replacements for knowing the reader and knowing the book.
