Books and beyond: New ways to reach readers
Opitz, M., Ford, M. & Zbaracki, M. (2006). Books and beyond: New ways to reach readers. United States of America: Heinemann.
Books and Beyond is a book of big ideas and smart, useful strategies. Opitz, Ford, and Zbaracki suggest ways to model literate behaviors so that students come to understand that reading is not reserved for the classroom but permeates everything adults do. They describe step by step how to use ten distinct types of outside-world text in your reading program, including a wide range of genres and media. They offer specific advice and instructional alternatives for each kind of text and answer key instructional questions about it.
