Reading in the Middle, thirty years in the making, is a chance to observe Nancie Atwell in action as she helps students become skilled, engaged, discerning readers. Nancie's students finish, on average, more than forty books each school year. This staff development DVD shows how she does it—how she inspires and orchestrates frequent, voluminous, independent reading of books.
Nancie shows us the methods that have made her book In the Middle a classic. She gives us a guided tour of her classroom, a seat in her reading workshop, and a CD full of samples of student work, plus her own reproducible forms. In the complete DVD, we see how she: · organizes herself and her classroom to support and keep track of students' reading · sets clear expectations and ground rules for reading workshop · talks with individuals about their chosen books and teaches reading one-to-one · presents lessons about critical, literary reading · uses booktalks to help students make smart choices · encourages habitual reading and the development of literary tastes, preferences, and opinions.
