11.01.16Reading Challenging Texts Aloud–My Column in TES

island-of-the-blue-dolphinsAs readers of this blog will surely know, I am a strong advocate of both reading aloud to your kids and specifically reading complex and challenging texts to them.  I recently described that what and why in much greater details than I’ve been able to before in the September 9 issue of England’s TES Magazine (@tes).  They graciously agreed to allow me to share a copy of the article.  It’s attached below in PDF. It starts with a reflection on a book I was reading to my second grader–Island of the Blue Dolphins–and progresses to a reflection on how children learn to read and how they learn to love reading.  Hope you enjoy it.
