A book that brings the habits of reading to life Great readers are not made by genetics or destiny but by the habits they build--habits that are intentionally built by their teachers. The early formal years of education are the key to reversing the reading gap and setting up children for success. But K-4 education seems to widen the gap between stronger and weaker readers, not close it. Today, the Common Core further increases the pressure to reach high levels of rigor. What can be done? This book includes the strategies, systems, and lessons from the top classrooms that bring the habits of reading to life, creating countless quality opportunities for students to take one of the most complex skills we as people can know and to perform it fluently and easily. Offers clear teaching strategies for teaching reading to all students, no matter what level Includes more than 40 video examples from real classrooms Written by Paul Bambrick-Santoyo, bestselling author of Driven by Data and Leverage Leadership Great Habits, Great Readers puts the focus on: learning habits, reading habits, guided reading, and independent reading.

"Great" Habits, " Great" ReadersOur students aren't born knowing how to decode words, make inferences, and cite evidence. In truth, great reading grows from great habits--a deeply learned set of skills and strategies that students can access the instant they begin reading. "Great Habits, Great Readers" is about the choices we as K-4 literacy instructors can make to teach every one of our students the habits of skillful reading. It outlines those strategies, systems, and lesson types that bring the habits of reading to life, creating countless high-quality opportunities for students to practice one of the most complex skills humans can learn.This book, and the Reading-by-Habit model it proposes, provides concrete guidance. "Great Habits, Great Readers" is not just about finding the right texts (though we'll cover that); it's not just about making discussions more text-dependent (though we'll address that, too). At its heart, the Reading-by-Habit model is about transforming that moment when a child gets something wrong into an opportunity to teach the habits that will help him or her get it right. Inside this book you'll find: The Reading-by-Habit model, which builds a bridge between the rigor of the Common Core and the real-life needs of your classFive types of lessons Read-aloud, comprehension skills, phonics, guided reading, and independent readingThe tools you need to address the Common Core across your literacy block in a sustained, meaningful wayRich resources--from 40+ video clips to Professional Development workshop scripts to show you what truly game-changing reading instruction looks likePraise for "Great Habits, Great Readers" """"Great Habits, Great Readers" brings the Common Core to life through real children, real teachers, amazing results, and an absolute clarity about what is needed in our elementary school classrooms. This book is a complete roadmap to excellence."--Mark Murphy, Secretary of Education, Delaware Department of Education"Bambrick-Santoyo and his colleagues have proven it's possible to create extraordinary schools for the children who need them most. In this book, they do something even more important--they show us how. Every educator in America should read, discuss, and act on the ideas in this book."--Timothy Knowles, John Dewey Urban Education Institute Director and clinical professor, University of Chicago
