Gotta Keep Reading

Did you recognize the tune?

Is that song now stuck in your head?

Why do you think that could be motivating for readers?

We need to encourage other to read just for the sake of reading and not only when it is required ...

I think having a CHOICE about books to read is an important part too ...

But if students are allowed to read whatever they want with no boundaries/teacher input, students may not be challenged or experience a wide variety of genres and authors ...

People have a way of choosing what feels comfortable when allowed choices without restrictions ....

When motivating, encouraging, and supporting reading, maintain a focus so students are stretched a bit and always learning and growing ....
