Overview

A book that brings the habits of reading to life

Great readers are not made by genetics or destiny but by the habits they build—habits that are intentionally built by their teachers. The early formal years of education are the key to reversing the reading gap and setting up children for success. But K-4 education seems to widen the gap between stronger and weaker readers, not close it. Today, the Common Core further increases the pressure to reach high levels of rigor. What can be done?

This book includes the strategies, systems, and lessons from the top classrooms that bring the habits of reading to life, creating countless quality opportunities for students to take one of the most complex skills we as people can know and to perform it fluently and easily.

  • Offers clear teaching strategies for teaching reading to all students, no matter what level
  • Includes more than 40 video examples from real classrooms
  • Written by Paul Bambrick-Santoyo, bestselling author of Driven by Data and Leverage Leadership

Great Habits, Great Readers puts the focus on: learning habits, reading habits, guided reading, and independent reading.
