Reflection: Routines and Procedures Modern Research Synthesis (Day 3 of 3): Hot Seat Debate - Section 1: SSR Reflection and Summer Reading Suggestions


Nearly every day this year, my students and I spent ten minutes reading together. I wasn't sure who it was going to work out, but after reading their reflections, I think it was well worth the time and effort to make this a regular part of our learning. Students almost unanimously agreed that this time was useful for them, saying things about how it helped them get their brains ready for class or to review what we were reading together. Even my most reluctant convert said both in his reflection and to me in person that he ended up really liking SSR and was excited about a few of the books he read this year (Woohoo!).

For you, dear reader, here is a list of some of the books that were widely read based on student recommendations this year. Hopefully you can pick one up or share them with your students so that you, too, can build a community of readers with just ten minutes a day!
