I pre-ordered my copy of Reading Reconsidered by Doug Lemov, Colleen Driggs and Erica Woolway back in October. It arrived last week. Within a week of its arrival, I was visiting museums to find non-fiction texts to embed in project work and to dress up.
This suggests that I was not approaching Reading Reconsidered neutral. I have been anticipating Reading Reconsidered for months.
England is some way behind the United States when it comes to reading in class. Much of my up-to-date reading knowledge comes from US blogs (e.g. Grant Wiggins and Timothy Shanahan). I was hoping for a book which took these ideas further while providing me with practical solutions to implementing them, which is exactly what this book does.
