My students do a lot of independent reading, so I want to be able to provide them with books that they'll love to read. It has to peak their interests and challenge them. I will be having classroom book studies where students will have a chance to discuss, use their critical thinking, and enhance their communication skills. I want to instill a passion for reading! So many students read just because they have to. I want them to read because they love it. Reading is a fundamental skill that everyone has to learn, but there are a lot of people that don't pick up a book once their out of school. There's so much pleasure and knowledge to gain from reading, and I want to share that with my students.
