Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Declare Your Readers’ Rights!


Often school literacy programs fall short of properly supporting preadolescents' and adolescents' literacy development. In A Declaration of Readers' Rights, this dynamic author team presents a research-based "rights" framework that addresses ten key rights for improving literacy development among adolescents.



Reviewers Can’t Put This Book Down!


“I think this text is one that should be in the library of every reading specialist.”

        ­­—Heidi Davey, Hoffman Estates High School, IL


“I think the topics in this book are timely and provide a wake up call for all reading teachers.  We must remember that not all students arrive in school ready to pick up and run with the reading instruction we provide.  Good reading instruction coupled with quality reading experiences must be seen as a right and not just a privilege.”

        —Molly Williams, Still Middle School, IL


Why This Book Will Change the Way You Teach Reading!

  • Discusses the ten readers' rights that all children and adolescents have the right to in the classroom.
  • Challenges teachers to strive to reprioritize their teaching to focus on the students.
  • Provides guidance for how to develop a successful student-teacher relationship to promote a positive classroom environment and student engagement, learning, and achievement in literacy education.
  • Outlines very specific recommendations and implementation strategies for middle and secondary teachers that go far beyond where other books stop. 
  • Walks teachers through identifying problems, makes suggestions for preventing reading difficulties, and offers advice for helping students get back on track.
  • Presents voices of students in grades 5-12, as well as the stories, experiences, and challenges of their teachers and parents throughout the book.
