Teaching students to become lifelong readers

A companion to the bestselling The Book Whisperer, Reading in the Wild explores whether or not we are truly instilling lifelong reading habits in our students and provides practical strategies for teaching "wild" reading. Based on survey responses from over 900 adult readers and classroom feedback, Reading in the Wild offers solid advice and strategies on how to develop, encourage and assess key lifelong reading habits, including dedicating time for reading, planning for future reading, and defining oneself as a reader.

  • Includes advice for supporting the love of reading by explicitly teaching lifelong reading habits
  • Contains accessible strategies, ideas, tips, lesson plans and management tools along with lists of recommended books
  • Co-published with Editorial Projects in Education, publisher of Education Week and Teacher Magazine
