"Teachers as Readers: Perspectives on the Importance of Reading in
Teachers' Classrooms and Lives" edited by Michelle Commeyras, Betty
Shockley Bisplinghoff and Jennifer Olson can be accessed on the GTP
website and through this URL .
This book explores the positive educational possibilities that are
possible when teachers share what, how, and why they read with their
students. Eighteen narrative essays offer readers a view into
teachers’ lives as they come to better understand their own reading
habits and into their classrooms as they impart their reading
practices to their students. The final chapter presents 13 stances
found across the essays that address, among many other issues, the
need for teachers to inform students of the new vocabulary they learn
through reading, share with students how they choose their personal
reading materials, and reveal to students the questions they have when
they read. The editors' hope is that others teachers will become
inspired to adopt similar practices in their own classrooms and lives.
