Joyful Reading offers teachers a differentiated instructional approach for motivating students at varied levels to discover the rewards and delights of reading appropriately challenging books. Authored by Sally M. Reis, an acclaimed scholar of gifted and talented education, the book describes the Schoolwide Enrichment Model for Reading (SEM-R), an easy-to-implement program that encourages students to read independently for a period of time during the school day on books of their own choice while supporting them in learning comprehension strategies. The program includes three phases:
  • a Book Hook component in which the teacher reads aloud from a high-interest book while engaging the class in critical thinking responses
  • a Supported Independent Reading component in which students are encouraged to select and read progressively challenging books while the teacher offers instruction through individualized confer-ences
  • a Special Interest component in which students engage in reading-enrichment activities

The book includes a DVD showing teachers using the program. A companion book, The Joyful Reading Resource Kit, is also available.
Sally M.

Widely published, Reis conducts workshops and provides professional development to schools and districts both nationally and internati...
