Motivating Readers. During Conferences, Teach the Reader, Not the Reading.
Calkins, Lucy
Instructor, v106 n3 p38-40 Oct 1996

This article presents three strategies for accomplishing this: studying the child, not the book; focusing on students' reading lives and knowing them as readers; and thinking of students as readers.
