Key Features


This book bundle includes 10 copies of Disrupting Thinking and 1-copy of the Scholastic Professional Book Study: The Literacy Leader's Guide. The Literacy Leader's Guide aims to help literacy leaders frame, deepen, and extend conversations about professional books with their school and district teams.n their hit books Notice and Note and Reading Nonfiction, Kylene Beers and Bob Probst showed teachers how to help students become close readers. Now, in Disrupting Thinking they take teachers a step further and discuss an on-going problem: lack of engagement with reading. They explain that all too often, no matter the strategy shared with students, too many students remain disengaged and reluctant readers. The problem, they suggest, is that we have misrepresented to students why we read and how we ought to approach any text - fiction or nonfiction.

With their hallmark humor and their appreciated practicality, Beers and Probst present a vision of what reading and what education across all the grades could be. Hands-on-strategies make it applicable right away for the classroom teacher, and turn-and-talk discussion points make it a guidebook for school-wide conversations. In particular, they share new strategies and ideas for helping classroom teachers:

-Create engagement and relevance

-Encourage responsive and responsible reading

-Deepen comprehension

-Develop lifelong reading habits

We think it's time we finally do become a nation of readers, and we know it's time students learn to tell fake news from real news. It's time we help students understand why how they read is so important,explain Beers and Probst. Disrupting Thinking is, at its heart, an exploration of how we help students become the reader who does so much more than decode, recall, or choose the correct answer from a multiple-choice list. This book shows us how to help students become the critical thinkers our nation needs them to be."
