Teach students how to practice reading skills independently – so learning sticks

Simply Stations: Independent Reading shows how to ensure that elementary students are purposefully and effectively practicing reading comprehension, reading fluency, selecting books, decoding, inference, and summarizing every day. Your students will soon be purposefully engaged and making critical steps to owning their learning.

Debbie Diller has been refining literacy stations (sometimes called centers) for more than 40 years, working with thousands of teachers and students. In this book, she guides you step-by-step through planning for instruction that incorporates reading standards, setting up and launching independent reading stations, varying and refreshing content, to reflection and ongoing modification.

  • Ideas to improve English Language Learners’ reading skills, including online Spanish-language materials;
  • 30 time-saving downloadable resources for teachers and students to ensure success; and
