Building Student Literacy Through Sustained Silent Reading
Preview this title by Steve Gardiner

This is a great boost for teachers starting a DEAR programme, or who would like to breathe new life into an existing SSR initiative. Gardiner shares his own experience and offers many examples from his own teaching. Many references are made to other leaders in the world of literacy. Many good ideas for implementation are included.
