I don’t believe in non-readers or reluctant readers; they are Yet-To-Be Readers! I believe in children who haven’t YET connected with reading. The connection could be finding the perfect book that speaks to them, regardless of topic and reading level. It can be a book in a different format such as an ebook or an audiobook. Or it could be sharing the reading experience with another person. Reading doesn’t have to be a solitary activity. It can be an event that brings people together. Chances are you became an educator because you love to read and want to share that joy with your students. But how can reading books compete with screen time and video games? Through this course we will collaborate and share ideas to promote books and reading in our school learning communities through low tech and high tech means.
