Professional Texts in Literacy Networks
SOEL is reading Every Child a Super Reader
Part of our professional learning networks involves reading at least one practitioner book per year. This year SOEL 1, focused on Equity, Engagement and Motivation, is reading Every Child a Super Reader by Pam Allyn and Ernest Morrell.
Every Child a Super Reader is geared toward K-8 teachers and is organized around a strength based framework, detailing the seven strengths inherent in super readers: belonging, curiosity, friendship, kindness, confidence, courage, and hope. Listen to the authors speak on the importance of a strength based (vs. a deficit model) instructional framework.
