Building Independent Readers: A Systematic Approach: 30 Mini-Lessons That Teach Students the Strategies They Need for Successful Sustained Independent Reading-All Year Long!

Paperback
Two seasoned teachers share their classroom-tested lessons and strategies that build young readers’ stamina so they can read independently for up to 50 minutes, giving them the extensive reading practice all budding readers need. Linda Lee and Mary Haymond take you step-by-step through the process, from creating community of readers and demonstrating book selection strategies to teaching fix-up mini-lessons so children know what to do when they get stuck and fostering whole-group sharing and discussion to ensure accountability. Detailed lessons for the first six weeks show exactly how to get started, and follow-up lessons throughout the year help keep children on track. For use with Grades 1-3.
