In Disrupting Thinking, Kylene Beers and Bob Probst discuss an ongoing 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 appreciated practicality, Beers and Probst present a vision of what reading and education across all the grades could be. Hands-on strategies make it immediately applicable for the classroom teacher, and turn-and-talk discussion points make it a guidebook for schoolwide conversations. In particular, they share new strategies and ideas for helping classroom teachers create engagement and relevance, encourage responsive and responsible reading, deepen comprehension, and develop lifelong reading habits.
