Reflection: Student Ownership Book Recommendations - Section 4: Share


This lesson is mostly on students developing a formal way of talking about books but I also want to help students find books to read so that they are never without a book. For much of the beginning of the year, when I find students not reading during independent reading time I get the excuse, “I don’t have anything to read” or “I just finished my book”. After this lesson and with the “What to read next” page, students will never have an excuse to not read.
