Supporting Reading in Grades 6-12 A Guide by Sybil M. Farwell, Nancy L. Teger

This book presents a curricular framework for students grades 6-12 that school librarians and teachers can use collaboratively to enhance reading skill development, promote literature appreciation, and motivate young people to incorporate reading into their lives, beyond the required schoolwork.* More than 100 lessons and activities from the Web as well as print sources correlated to the components of the curriculum * An annual calendar of READS activities for secondary schools * A bibliography including dozens of resources for student use and on professional topics * A glossary of key terms used in libraries and classrooms * A useful index offering access to instructional concepts, strategies, programs, and resources * A READS curriculum chart for grades 6 through 12


This title is one of the best works to promote and inspire reading I have found. . . . The documentation, bibliographic materials, sources, websites, and more are awesome. This work has value for all librarians. . . . Highly Recommended. - Library Media Connection
