Featuring contributions from Peter Afflerbach, Carol Gordon, Stephen Krashen, Donna Ogle, and AASL 2004 Fall Forum Participants. In our current role as educators in this era of reading to learn and reading accountability, school library media specialists are seeking proven reading strategies to engage our students. This concise guide features reading strategies geared for elementary and secondary students as well as a hearty nod to free and voluntary reading programs supported by school library media programs. Leading reading experts contribute their thoughts on the current state of reading instruction in our 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.
