I saw some references to books that other reading teachers have read- so I thought why not start a discussion on great books that we have used as resources to improve our reading instruction...
If you add one, tell us a little about why you liked it or what its main focus is.
I'll start with three MUST reads
Mosaic of Thought (Zimmerman and Keene)
(Great resource for why and how to teach explicit reading strategies)
I Read it, but I don't get it and Do I really have to teach reading? by Cris Tovani
(Great resource for upper grades and for content teachers)
