Every Student Reads: Collaboration and Reading to Learn
American Association of School Librarians (NJ3)
This guide features reading strategies geared for elementary and secondary students as well as recommendations for reading programs supported by school library programs. Leading reading experts who were presenters at the 2004 American Association of School Librarians (AASL) Fall Forum contribute their thoughts on the current state of reading instruction in the nation's schools. Action steps for collaborative planning and teaching empower practitioners to provide best practices for reading engagement. Exemplary collaborative projects spanning K-12 grade levels and various content areas are written in lesson plan format and are tied to information literacy standards and essential questions. Suggested readings highlight sources for further study of reading strategies. "Every Student Reads" features contributions from Peter Afflerbach, Carol Gordon, Stephen Krashen, Donna Ogle, and 2004 AASL Fall Forum Participants. The 2004 AASL Fall Forum, October 1-3 in Dallas, Texas, immersed library media specialists, reading teachers and other educators in strategies to increase their students' abilities to "read to learn."
