mindi_rMindi Rench@CELeadership #litlead Independent reading gives students CHOICE, which leads to engagement. No growth unless kids are reading MORE.

pennykittlepenny kittleDon’t forget that our goal is to raise independent readers. They must practice. They won’t practice if they hate it. #litlead

pennykittlepenny kittleWe have to engage students in both difficult texts where we lead, & texts they can read fluently, voraciously, away from us. #litlead

CELeadershipCELWhat does independent reading look like in your classrooms? Do you read every day? For how long? #litlead

44
eltruesdElizabeth TruesdellI like the notion of building stamina, especially in our increasingly ADD/ADHD environments for all ages. #litlead
45
CarrieFryerRiceCarrie Fryer Rice@pennykittle what do we tell admin that hate that we waste time having kids read bc they aren't "engaged"? #litlead
46
pjmonahanPat MonahanIndependent reading gives students an opportunity to control their own curriculums #litlead
47
AndersonGLGary AndersonWe read self-selected books for 10 minutes each day. Then we write blog posts about our reading. Plus a lot of bookish chatter. #litlead

teachcmb56Colette M Bennett@CELeadership Hello, Colette Bennett, Reg#6 in CT. We read 15-20 mins in our alternating block schedule grades 7-11 #litlead
51
llbyronLaurie Byron#litlead Choice values all readers at all levels. It enables differentiation and is student driven with the teacher as a guide.
52
Robitaille2011Louise Robitaille#litlead Hi..1st time visit...from Ontario Canada!
53
KeriSkeetersKeri Skeeters@pennykittle Such a delicate issue...need to get them to read challenging texts, but keep them engaged! #litlead
54
lady1890Carol Varsalona@CELeadership #litlead Independent reading allows students to engage with that they enjoy.
55
MrBronkeChristopher Bronke#litlead I wish I could say they read independent every day but they don't. However they either read or write every day--independently.
56
heatherroccoHeather RoccoWe read every day for ten minutes at the beginning of class. My students cherish the time. #litlead
57
jschwarzeteachJanice SchwarzeIf you want a "buzz word," independent reading is an easy way to differentiate! #litlead
58
beebekienstraMary Kienstra#litlead Hi - Mary from suburban Chicago - this topic is near to my heart. I teach gifted 4th and 5th graders
59
pennykittlepenny kittle@CarrieFryerRice We read 10 minutes in our 80 minute block. You can see engagement. I ask admin to come & talk to students. #litlead

61
AndersonGLGary AndersonOnce students become habitual readers, they will begin to challenge themselves. Guaranteed. #litlead
62
GwynethC1801PenelopeWhen freedom and choice is there, but they still complain...? #litlead

teachcmb56Colette M BennettWe just had the 9th gr students commit to an independent book before spring break and put their choices on Shelfari #litlead
66
mindi_rMindi Rench@pennykittle @CarrieFryerRice "Talk to your students" is always my answer when asked "How do you know they're really reading?" #litlead
67
KeriSkeetersKeri Skeeters@CarrieFryerRice @pennykittle If they are actively reading, then they are engaged. Not sure how that's not engagement. #litlead
68
llbyronLaurie Byron#litlead we try to read every day and talk everyday about reading. Choice also enables reading communities to blossom.
69
CarrieFryerRiceCarrie Fryer Rice@CELeadership yes, every day for around 20 mins a mix of independent and together both ap texts and choice #litlead
70
pennykittlepenny kittle@GwynethC1801 Then they are in the wrong book. The book to kid match is critical. #litlead
71
eltruesdElizabeth TruesdellOur Kamehameha campus on the Big Island has four 20-minute SSR reading blocks each week for choice. Mixed reviews. #litlead
72
jschwarzeteachJanice SchwarzeI have had reluctant readers BEG for more reading time when we have SSR (silent, sustained reader) ... need I say more? #litlead

kelleemoyeKellee MoyeRT @BHomel1: My students who have been hooked by indep. reading ask for time everyday as soon as they walk in the room. #litlead

teachcmb56Colette M BennettAfter 7 months of reading separately, the 9th graders are starting to ask for recommendations and setting up book buddies #litlead
88
aleanessAnn LeanessKids read plenty of difficult text in all subjects, they need to be given time for fun, light reading too! #litlead
89
KeriSkeetersKeri SkeetersIt's hard to find time for independent reading everyday in 50-60 minute class periods. Glad @pennykittle does 10; I feel better! #litlead
90
beebekienstraMary Kienstra#litlead kids read at least 30 min during reading class. try to balance choice with class novels.
91
llbyronLaurie Byron@AndersonGL #litlead I agree. SS move to challenging texts. They are invigorated by other SS. Again, for me the community of readers is key
92
CarrieFryerRiceCarrie Fryer Rice@pennykittle great idea! Thanks! #litlead

thereadingzoneSarah Mulhern GrossLove that we had some extra time yesterday and one of my freshman boys shouted, "Let's do book talks!!" #litlead
96
Robitaille2011Louise Robitaille@CELeadership #litlead We have a daily 120 minute literacy block...independent could include more than 40 minutes...
97
AndersonGLGary Anderson@KeriSkeeters We do 10 minutes of IR every day in 50-minute periods. That time is sacred. #litlead
