Naked Reading: Uncovering What Tweens Need to Become Lifelong Readers (Paperback)

£20.95
Usually despatched within 3 weeks.

Synopsis

Naked Reading was inspired by the author's ten-year-old granddaughter, whose frequent practice of spending time after a shower air-drying in the privacy of the bathroom, so she can continue reading an engrossing book, made Teri Lesesne curious about what makes some tweens avid readers while others elect not to read or become dormant readers.



Not yet fully young adults, but-as they are quick to tell you-no longer "little kids," these nine-to-fourteen-year-olds are at a stage where every day brings new emotions and physical growth, when habits become ingrained, and when tastes are established.



For teachers, the tween years can be the best and worst of times. While some fourth-to-ninth-graders come to see books as a lifeline for understanding a changing world, too many experience "the fourth-grade slump"-a marked decline in interest and achievement in reading. Without help, many become middle and high school students who have stopped reading for pleasure, and only slog through what is assigned.



Teri draws on her extensive experience as a teacher and consultant to examine ways that educators can help interest kids in books and keep them reading during this crucial period. She looks at:







developmental attributes of tweens;

emerging interests for tweens;

themes and plots tweens find most engaging;

annotations for scores of children's and YA literature most appropriate for tweens;

practical classroom activities for sparking tween engagement in reading.



As in her previous book, Making the Match, Naked Reading is loaded with specific titles to help you connect kids with books that will interest them the most.

There was never any doubt in Teri Lesesne's mind that she would one day become a teacher. "It is the only thing I ever considered becoming," she says. She loves to see kids' faces light up as they learn. "Kids of all ages are so responsive, so engaged in what they are doing, and it is wonderful to see the wheels turning." Teri was born in Pittsburgh, but lived in Texas all of her adult life. She spent fifteen years as a middle school teacher and has been a university professor for the last fifteen years. She is currently teaching in the Department of Library Science at Sam Houston State University. She is also a presenter and consultant for schools and districts across the country. During her presentations, she learns just as much from her audience as her audience does from her. "I try to make it [professional development] as painless as possible. I spent fifteen years listening to others do professional development and I learned from all the presenters what and what not to do. I tend to be fairly informal and rather flippant. I tell jokes and stories about myself and my experiences to illustrate points I am trying to make." Teri is the author of Making the Match and Naked Reading. "The first book had a different process from the second one. Who knows what my approach might be next?" Reading Aloud: A Worthwhile Investment?
