"In The Book in Question, Carol Jago issues a call to action. Reading is in crisis. Too often, too many students are choosing not to read. Along with her research-based rationale for the critical importance of reading, Carol offers practical suggestions for how to nurture a community of readers, providing a wealth of ideas for helping students to:
- Begin to think of themselves as readers
- Choose books for themselves purposefully - for pleasure and for challenge
- Know what to do when confronted with unfamiliar vocabulary
- Develop confidence navigating complex sentence structures
- Overcome their instinctive fear of poetry
- Participate (both speaking AND listening) in classroom conversations
- Find time to read outside of class
- Write from the heart about what they have read

The English Department will examine Jago's text to support our on-going literacy work. Teachers will be asked to enhance a lesson or teaching practice based on the suggested strategies in the text."
