Donalyn Miller says she has yet to meet a child she couldn't turn into a reader. No matter how far behind Miller's students might be when they reach her 6th grade classroom, they end up reading an average of 40 to 50 books a year. Miller's unconventional approach dispenses with drills and worksheets that make reading a chore. Instead, she helps students navigate the world of literature and gives them time to read books they pick out themselves. Her love of books and teaching is both infectious and inspiring. The book includes a dynamite list of recommended "kid lit" that helps parents and teachers find the books that students really like to read.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

A gripping literary thriller and smash bestseller that has taken Italy, France, Germany and the UK by storm. Six severed arms are discovered, arranged in a mysterious circle and buried in a clearing in the woods. Five of them appear to belong to missing girls between the ages of eight and eighteen. The sixth is yet to be identified. Worse still, the girls' bodies, alive or dead, are nowhere to be found. Lead investigators Mila Vasquez, a celebrated profiler, and Goran Gavila, an eerily prescient criminologist, dive into the case. They're confident they've got the right suspect in their sights until they discover no link between him and any of the kidnappings except the first. The evidence in the case of the second missing child points in a vastly different direction, creating more questions than it answers. Vasquez and Gavila begin to wonder if they've been brought in to take the fall in a near-hopeless case. Is it all coincidence? Or is a copycat criminal at work? Obsessed with a case that becomes more tangled and intense as they unravel the layers of evil, Gavila and Vasquez find that their lives are increasingly in each other's hands. THE WHISPERER, as sensational a bestseller in Europe as the Stieg Larsson novels, is that rare creation: a thought-provoking, intelligent thriller that is also utterly unputdownable.

View the Independent Writing Within, Beyond and About Texts Webinar Now there are three distinct Reader's Notebooks to help students grades K through 8 become better readers through writing. New! Reader's Notebook: Primary (recommended for Grades K-2) Reader's Notebook (recommended for Grades 2-4) Reader's Notebook: Advanced (recommended for Grades 4-8) Here's an engaging way to improve your students' reading comprehension and to encourage them to write their thoughts about what they've read. It is also an excellent assessment tool for documenting reading achievement over time in a reading workshop that includes independent reading, guided reading, and genre study. Fountas & Pinnell Reader's Notebooks are 8x10 spiral notebooks, similar to what students use every day, but specially designed to promote reflection and dialogue about reading. As described in the authors' best-selling Guiding Readers and Writers, Grades 3-6, the Reader's Notebook is practical and easy to use. In it, students transform traditional book reports into active dialogues. The notebook becomes a personal storehouse of students' thoughts and feelings and a place to access them for later review, reflection, and sharing. It is also a way for teachers to systematically assess students' responses to the texts they are reading independently. Used throughout the academic year, the notebook serves as a continual record of one reader's book list, interests and reading responses. Students may write in longhand, make charts or quick sketches, or glue in their writings produced on the computer. The Reader's Notebook also contains many different resources for writing about reading. It is organized into easy-to-use, color-coded tabbed sections. The Reader's Notebook is also available in 25 packs
