Books Info:

Gateway to Reading free pdf Getting students to want to read is one of the greatest challenges facing middle school teachers and librarians. Determining which books are the "right books" that can spark a child's mental awakening is also difficult. This book from prolific author Nancy Polette furnishes interesting and fun games to pique students' interest in junior novels that are worth reading--carefully selected titles that will contribute to their educational and emotional growth. Gateway to Reading: 250 Author Games and Booktalks to Motivate Middle Readers is a powerful tool for luring middle school students away from the distractions of 21stcentury media and introducing them to junior or 'tween novels that they won't be able to put down. By presenting children with a challenge to engage their minds--racing to decode book titles, or using their creativity to come up with titles of their own, for example--students are naturally drawn towards reading these books from well known children's authors.
