Do your students often struggle with difficult novels and other challenging texts Do they think one reading of a work is more than enough Do they primarily comprehend at a surface level and are they frequently unwilling or unable to discover the deeper meaning found in multi layered works Do you feel that you are doing more work teaching the novel than they are reading it br br Building on twenty years of teaching language arts Kelly Gallagher author of em Reading Reasons em shows how students can be taught to successfully read a broad range of challenging and difficult texts with deeper levels of comprehension In em Deeper Reading em Kelly shares effective classroom tested strategies that enable your students to accept the challenge of reading difficult books move beyond a first draft understanding of the text into deeper levels of reading consciously monitor their comprehension as they read employ effective fix it strategies when their comprehension begins to falter use meaningful collaboration to achieve deeper understanding of texts think metaphorically to deepen their reading comprehension reach deeper levels of reflection by understanding the relevance the book holds for themselves and their peers use critical thinking skills to analyze real world issues br br Kelly also provides guidance on effective lesson planning that incorporates strategies for deeper reading br br Funny poignant and packed with practical ideas that work in real classrooms em Deeper Reading em is a valuable resource for any teacher whose students need new tools to uncover the riches found in complex texts, When Kelly Gallagher learned that his ninth grade students could not name the vice president of the United States and when two seniors asked him in all seriousness Who is this guy Al Qaeda Kelly was shocked into realizing he needed to do something outside the standard curriculum to build his students background knowledge In response he developed the Article of the Week activity to address the serious gaps in his students education br br Each week students read a short article that informs them about the world Students highlight passages and words they don t understand consider the author s purpose and intended audience and work through any confusion The class then discusses how the structure and craft of the article informs reader comprehension and how they can implement these elements into their own writing br br In minutes Kelly shows teachers how to integrate the Article of the Week into their own classrooms in a manner that provides the background knowledge that is the foundation for critical reading, b i Read i cide i b i n The systematic killing of the love of reading often exacerbated by the inane mind numbing practices found in schools i br br br Reading is dying in our schools Educators are familiar with many of the factors that have contributed to the decline poverty second language issues and the ever expanding choices of electronic entertainment In this provocative new book Kelly Gallagher suggests however that it is time to recognize a new and significant contributor to the death of reading our schools br br In i Readicide i Kelly argues that American schools are actively though unwittingly furthering the decline of reading Specifically he contends that the standard instructional practices used in most schools are killing reading by br valuing the development of test takers over the development of lifelong readers br mandating breadth over depth in instruction br requiring students to read difficult texts without proper instructional support br insisting that students focus solely on academic texts br drowning great books with sticky notes double entry journals and marginalia br ignoring the importance of developing recreational reading and br losing sight of authentic instruction in the shadow of political pressures br br Kelly doesn t settle for only identifying the problems i Readicide i provides teachers literacy coaches and administrators with specific steps to reverse the downward spiral in reading steps that will help prevent the loss of another generation of readers, What is in the best interest of our students Is it teaching to the newest standards movement like the Common Core Teaching that prepares students to take a test Or is it something more meaningful and authentic br In his new book i In the Best Interest of Students i Kelly Gallagher notes that there are real strengths in the Common Core standards and there are significant weaknesses as well He takes the long view reminding us that standards come and go but what remains constant is the need to stay true to what we know works in the teaching of reading writing speaking and listening Instead of blindly adhering to the latest standards movement Kelly advocates br br Dialing up the amount of reading and writing students are doing br Balancing rigorous high quality literature and non fiction with high interest student selected titles br Giving students much more choice when it comes to reading and writing activities br Encouraging readers to deepen their comprehension by moving beyond the four corners of the text br Using modeling to enrich students writing skills in the prewriting drafting and revision stages br Helping young writers to achieve more authenticity through the blending of genres br Resisting the de emphasis of narrative and imaginative reading and writing br Providing students with more opportunities to sharpen their listening and speaking skills br Planning lessons that move beyond Common Core expectations br br In this provocative and insightful new book Kelly surveys the teaching landscape since the publication of his highly regarded book i Readicide i and finds that although some progress has been made more needs to be done Amid the frenzy of trying to teach to a new set of standards Kelly Gallagher is a strong voice of reason reminding us that instruction should be anchored around one guiding question What is in the best interest of our students
