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.

Zugegeben - Die alte Straße von Rebel Corners nach San Juan de la Cruz ist steil und ziemlich gewunden. Dennoch hätte es für Juan Chicoy und seinen betagten Autobus 'Sweetheart' eine ganz normale Fahrt werden können, wäre nicht der San Ysidro über die Ufer getreten. Um nicht mit seinen Passagieren in die reißenden Fluten zu stürzen, muss Juan auf einen Seitenweg ausweichen - und prompt landet 'Sweetheart' im Graben. Erst in dieser Krise zeigt sich, dass Juan nicht einfach nur zahlende Passagiere, sondern lebendige, leidenschaftliche Menschen mit Wünschen und Plänen an Bord hat. Da sind sein Mechaniker Pimples und die Serviererin Norma, die von Clark Gable und Hollywood träumt, da sind die schöne Mildred Pritchard und ihre Eltern, der Nachtclub-Star Camille, der Scherzartikel-Vertreter Ernest, eine zufällig zusammengewürfelte Gesellschaft von Reisenden, die bei diesem unfreiwilligen Abenteuer zu sich selbst finden. Auch Juan, so stellt sich heraus, hat mehr im Sinn als nur den täglichen Pendelverkehr über die Berge.
