Get kids hooked on books! ""Summer Reading" is a timely look at the power of reading in the development of student literacy. It delivers a potent message to administrators, classroom teachers, reading specialists, and librarians to design summer reading programs based on a balanced view of reading instruction." "-Sheila Bostrom, Brush Schools, Colorado" Inspired by school-established summer reading camps designed to help struggling readers, Dr. Fay Shin and Dr. Stephen Krashen have built a research-based plan to guide schools in replicating this successful strategy. Written in a friendly style by two top scholars in literacy and ESL, "Summer Reading: Program and Evidence" provides a framework rooted in scientific data supporting how these programs succeed. By including standardized test scores as well as personal reflections from teachers and students on building effective summer reading camps, the authors motivate teachers to help students excel beyond the traditional classroom, promoting success from one year to the next. Why Summer Reading Matters Helps children become confident and competent readers. Encourages students to read books they enjoy and can access. Fosters teacher-student relationships and promotes students' motivation to engage with reading.
