Supporting learning through reading lists

Librarian extraordinaire Dr Joyce Valenza has (yet another) great idea for supporting and encouraging reading in her school.

By developing this wiki with reading lists, information on texts, study guides, rubrics, book trailers, book reviews, directions and general requirements, students in years 9-12 (and their parents) have a head start on the year’s required reading for English classes.

What a terrific way for students to be prepared for the year ahead. As always, Dr Valenza’s wiki is an example that we can use as a basis to develop our own ideas for supporting our students’ learning.

  1. WOW! This is a GREAT idea! I just sent a link to Joyce’s wiki to my Reading Specialist. I’m going to coax her into helping me create a resource like this for our K-5 teachers. Our teachers, and families, would appreciate having all of the resources in one place!
