TEACH YOUR STUDENTS TO READ LIKE CHAMPIONS—WITH RIGOR, INDEPENDENCE, PRECISION, AND INSIGHT
The world we are preparing our students to succeed in is one bound together by words and phrases. Our students learn their literature, history, math, science, or art via a firm foundation of strong reading skills. When we teach students to read with precision, rigor, and insight, we are truly handing over the key to the kingdom. Of all the subjects we teach reading is first among equals.
Grounded in advice from effective classrooms nationwide, enhanced with more than 40 video clips, Reading Reconsidered takes you into the trenches with actionable guidance from real–life educators and instructional champions. The authors address the anxiety–inducing world of Common Core State Standards, distilling from those standards four key ideas that help hone teaching practices both generally and in preparation for assessments. This ′Core of the Core′ comprises the first half of the book and instructs educators on how to teach students to: read harder texts, ′closely read′ texts rigorously and intentionally, read nonfiction more effectively, and write more effectively in direct response to texts.
The second half of Reading Reconsidered reinforces these principles, coupling them with the ′fundamentals′ of reading instruction—a host of techniques and subject specific tools to reconsider how teachers approach such essential topics as vocabulary, interactive reading, and student autonomy. Reading Reconsidered breaks an overly broad issue into clear, easy–to–implement approaches. Filled with practical tools, including:  


  • 44 video clips of exemplar teachers demonstrating the techniques and principles in their classrooms (note: for online access of this content, please visit my.teachlikeachampion.com)
  • Recommended book lists
  • Downloadable tips and templates on key topics like reading nonfiction, vocabulary instruction, and literary terms and definitions.
Reading Reconsidered provides the framework necessary for teachers to ensure that students forge futures as lifelong readers.

TEACH YOUR STUDENTS TO READ LIKE CHAMPIONS—WITH RIGOR, INDEPENDENCE, PRECISION, AND INSIGHT
In Reading Reconsidered, Doug Lemov, author of the groundbreaking Teach Like a Champion, and his coauthors, Colleen Driggs and Erica Woolway, reveal the most productive ideas gleaned from the most effective teachers of reading. This book takes you into the trenches with actionable guidance from real–life educators and instructional champions. The authors address the anxiety–inducing world of Common Core State Standards, distilling from those standards four key ideas that help hone teaching practices both generally and in preparation for assessments. This "Core of the Core" shows how to teach students to: read harder texts, closely read texts rigorously and intentionally, read nonfiction more effectively, and write more effectively in direct response to texts.
The authors also focus on the "fundamentals" of reading instruction—techniques and subject specific tools that reconsider approaches to such essential topics as vocabulary, interactive reading, and student autonomy. Filled with practical tools and over 40 video clips from real classrooms, this book provides the framework we need to ensure our students forge futures as lifelong readers.
"Teaching children to read is our most challenging task in education. This book is a ′must–read′ for K–12 educators trying to crack this very tough nut!"
—Terry Grier, superintendent of schools, Houston Independent School District
"Reading Reconsidered provokes us into thinking in new ways about that most foundational of academic skills: making sense of the written word. The authors offer a fresh perspective on reading that is both intellectually stimulating and relentlessly practical."
—Annie Murphy Paul, education journalist and blogger

“…contains a wealth of information and practical advice – most of it distilled from experienced practitioners – that will be of benefit to anyone teaching reading and literacy.” (InTuition, June 2016)
