Book description

In this timely, wise, and often witty book, eminent educator and author David Booth argues that teachers must redefine reading as an activity that embraces the needs and interests of students. Reading isn't just about Janet and John or great literature any more: it's about the Internet, comic books, technical manuals, graphic novels, iPods, and much more.Booth outlines twelve simple steps to help teachers and parents alike revolutionise the way they view - and encourage - children's reading in all kinds of genres and formats. He argues forcefully that we must: redefine what reading means; include comics, magazines, manuals, along with novels in our reading programmes; understand that technology is part of the new literacy; remember that story is the heart of literacy; help students build strong reading muscles; value the reading responses of young people; view writing as literacy; recognise the different ages and stages of individuals; explore how words work; turn printed texts into active learning; focus on literacy in every subject; and welcome youngsters into the culture of literacy.In some very personal reflections, the author reveals the decisive moments in his life that have shaped his approach to reading and learning. Lively anecdotes throughout the book create a highly readable narrative that makes a compelling case for recognising the unique value of reading...almost anything. The book concludes with more than 100 suggestions for literacy activities that celebrate reading not just in school, but the world beyond.
