Reading

Published by

Reading is the foundation upon which almost everything we do in school is based. Our goal is not only to help each student become a better reader (regardless of where he/she starts the year) but to insure that everyone in the class appreciates the joy, wonder, and magic of reading as much as we do.

We’ll spend a lot of time on reading throughout the year: working on stamina, improving comprehension, learning about strategies that good readers use, discussing books, and, of course, reading independently.

Within the reading workshop students will read fiction and non-fiction books and other texts, primarily of their own choosing. There will be assigned reading as well, especially within subject areas. Students are expected to read at home for a minimum of 30 minutes, at least 5 times per week.

Our reading curriculum will include the following units:

Unit 1: Character Studies / Book Clubs (1)

Unit 2: Non-Fiction 

Unit 3: Interpretation Book Clubs (2 & 3)

Unit 4: Genre Review & Poetry

Unit 5: Argument & Advocacy: Researching Debatable Issues

Unit 6: Reading in the Content Area
