Description

Co-author of \"Reading Unbound: Why Kids Need to Read What They Want-and Why We Should Let Them.\"

The book is divided into two parts: Part One provides an in-depth exploration of the nature and variety of the pleasure avid adolescent readers experience through their out-of-school reading. Part Two identifies and explains the genres teen readers most enjoy—romance, vampires, dystopian fiction, and science fiction/fantasy. The authors explore what we can learn from teens’ pleasure reading and the implications for instruction in this era of Common Core State Standards. They also suggest ways to make pleasure more central to the work we do in schools. For use with Grades 6 & Up.
