Creating Readers for Life

What's Inside

Brassell's wit, experience, and enthusiasm shine through as he doles out sure-fire ideas for increasing students' access to texts, empowering students to make their own choices when reading, and ramping up student engagement by reading aloud (in very interesting ways!) and making time in and out of the classroom reading as often as possible. Helpful sidebars, video clips, and takeaways enhance this article—and give teachers, administrators, and parents a jump-off point for inspiring children "to love reading so they become better, avid readers who achieve more!"
