Summary "Educators must be able to engage with readers of all types and abilities. They must also be able to evaluate where each student lies on the continuum and improve students' skills to bring them to the appropriate level. Engaging Young Readers is a beginner-level guide focusing on developmental reading strategies for elementary students at all stages and exploring how technology can be used to improve the skills of a wide range of readers, including beginning readers, struggling readers, reluctant readers, enriched readers and English Language Learners (ELLs). Topics covered include using music as an instructional tool, choral reading and read alouds, graphic organizers, dramatic learning and literature circles, writing workshops and much more!"-- Provided by publisher
