Taming the Wild Text Summer Book Club

Ready to explore the five habits of today’s readers? Are you committed to finding a balance between traditional and print reading materials? This summer Pam Allyn and I are hosting a summer book club for teachers who are ready to tame the wild text! We’re very excited to invite you to participate in a special summer book club where we’ll explore Taming the Wild Text: Literacy Strategies for Today’s Readers, our book on reading in a digital world.

Free Summer Book Club

Would you like to join the Summer Book Club? Here are the details:

You can work at your own pace during the summer. There will be five questions posted throughout June and July. Anyone who joins the book club will have access to a special Flipgrid page where you can respond to the questions by recording video reflections right from Flipgrid’s website or using their mobile app. In August, we’ll host a live Google Hangout to share a few more favorite reading strategies and answer your questions!

The book club is free to join, all you have to do is show proof of purchase of Taming the Wild Text: Literacy Strategies for Today’s Readers. You might have a receipt from Amazon (print version) or Teacher Created Materials (print or ebook version) if you ordered a copy of the book online.
