Extensive Reading Ideas and Intensive Reading Lessons

The #1 Goal of this page is that READING SHOULD BE FUN! This page has various ideas and handouts for extensive reading projects so teachers can encourage students to read more outside of class.  In addition to ideas for extensive reading, there are also a variety of reading lessons.  Many of these lessons have themes and topics that raise students' awareness of global issues to foster a sense of global citizenship.
