    Love & Literacy: A Practical Guide to Finding the Magic in Literature (Grades 5-12)
    What Does it Take for Students to Fall in Love with Literacy?

    The saying goes that when our students enter middle and high school they stop learning to read and start reading to learn. Then why is literacy still a struggle for so many of them?

    Love & Literacy steps into the classrooms of extraordinary middle- and high-school teachers who have guided students to the highest levels of literacy. With the right tools and moves, every teacher can help their students understand, and from there the love of literacy begins. Inside this book you’ll find the answers to four key questions:

    * What's my dream for kids? Creating curriculum that is challenging, comprehensible, and inclusive

    * What does it mean to "get it" ? Coaching students to understand and analyze text

    * What will I hear when students "get it" ? Facilitating student-centered discourse

    * How do I build it? Building a literacy culture and getting started now

    These insights are accompanied by an online, print-ready handbook that places every tool at your fingertips along with more than 20 video clips of literacy instruction.

    Reviews

    "If you believe — as I do — that understanding literature is not a destination but rather a life-long journey, this book will resonate deeply. Along with practical protocols for supporting young readers on the path to comprehension, the authors offer a model curriculum that ‘whispers what the world is and what it might become. Pedagogy by readers for readers." --CAROL JAGO, author and past president, National Council of Teachers of English

    "What's not to love? A resource for encouraging students to engage in productive conversations about texts? This highly-readable and practical guide shows you how to make this a reality in your classroom." --DOUGLAS FISHER & NANCY FREY, authors and professors, San Diego State University
