Reading Letters:
An Introduction

Reading letters can be a great way for students and teachers to carry on a dialogue about a student’s reading life. If a teacher chooses, reading letters can also be an important staple of the independent reading work that carries through the entire year.

Through the conversations generated in these letters, students are given the opportunity to think alongside a proficient reader. During these exchanges, teacher and student consider topics and problems that arise during the course of an individual’s independent reading life.
