Blog tour: Get a sneak peek at Kelly Gallagher's new book
How Schools are Killing Reading and What You Can Do About It
Reading is dying in our schools. Educators are familiar with many of the factors that have contributed to the decline -- poverty, second-language issues, and the ever-expanding choices of electronic entertainment. In this provocative new book, Kelly Gallagher suggests, however, that it is time to recognize a new and significant contributor to the death of reading: our schools. Readicide provides teachers, literacy coaches, and administrators with specific steps to reverse the downward spiral in reading -- steps that will help prevent the loss of another generation of readers.
Now you can get a sneak peek at this groundbreaking book and participate in a five-stop blog book tour with Kelly. Each of the following blogs will post either a Q&A with Kelly, or a review of the book, or will give you the opportunity to submit questions to Kelly. So browse the book and then check out all of these blogs in the coming days and discuss this important topic with your fellow teachers/readers.
