If we expect our students to become lifelong readers, we need to model that in our own lives. There are so many different ways we can share our reading life with students. One-on-one conversations are always ideal, but it can be difficult to talk with each and every one of our students
In my post on AASL Knowledge Quest, I share some strategies for sharing what books you are reading with your students, teachers and community. I like to use a combination of different methods so that I can reach more people.
In my post I share more about how I use the following methods:
- A physical window display of books I’ve read (hint: it’s similar to how I create my Instagram display)
- An e-mail signature with my current read(s)
- Social media platforms like Goodreads
And while I’m at it, I realized that I forgot to add a link to my own Goodreads account (in part because I’ve neglected it for a few years). I’m experimenting with getting back into it this year, so feel free to follow me (or friend me? I’m not sure about the terminology) to see what I’m reading.
