When Kids Can't Read

Most Recently Read Book:

When Kids Can't Read

By Kylene Beers

Man, it seems like it's taken me forever to get through this book. It is an academic text after all. I truly enjoyed reading this book because there were so many ideas and there were so many topics that really hit home to me. I have already taken some ideas and put them to use with my students. I love reading books that tie in exactly with my philosophy of giving kids access and opportunities to read books that they are motivated to read. I like that there are ideas for helping kids that need help actually reading words and for helping them think through text and apply reading strategies. This is a definite must read for any teachers targeting reading with kiddos!
