How to Create a Culture of Reading in Schools (Lorraine M. Radice)

In an earlier episode with Darlene Prott, we discussed how to help students to engage in the act of reading itself.

In this episode, we speak with Lorraine Radice - K-12 director of literacy in a public school district in New York and author of the book Leading a Culture of Reading -about how to create a welcoming school community culture centered around reading.

This culture can take many forms, some of which we unpack here - adult book study, parent academies centered around how to help parents read with one's child, class/teacher book swaps, activities where students are the stakeholders driving literacy discussions, and many more!

Radice also describes her work as a "reading role model" in previewing and presenting new childrens and young adult fiction/non-fiction texts to her colleagues - who then serve as adult reading role models to their students - as well as the genres of text that different learner age groups tend to enjoy.
