I've tried several of the read alouds in a middle school. The students really were riveted! Janet Allen has produced another very useful book for educators.

I've just read one story to my pupils, aged 11 to 12, and they loved it. It is entitled "Eleven" and is about how when one turns 11, one is also 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 inside. My pupils related so well with the story as they felt that way too. That when it is one's birthday, one does not necessarily feel older or wiser and that one usually feels that age only midway or a third way through that year. The kids are looking forward to the next read and I have 34 more to pick from! And the stories are in various genres which is fabulous as the children need the exposure.

I feel reading aloud to my pupils has brought us closer as I read to my son as often as I can, every night and more on weekends, and my pupils know that. They appreciate that I am sharing with them stuff both he and I enjoy. I have read to them a few short stories from the books "Nicholas Again" and "Nicholas on Vacation" by Goscinny, the man who gave us the Asterix and Obelix comics! The second of which my son asks for often. He'll say "Wickerwus read!", as he's just 26 months old, whenever he wants a story from it.

This is exactly what I was looking for. So many texts and programs recommend using read alouds as part of a mini lesson, but leave out any real ideas about WHAT to read. I love that I now have a resource that has located and analyzed some short peices for me. Teachers should not have to reinvent the wheel independently to use this strategy effectively. This book provides the perfect solution for the starting workshop teacher. YEAH!!

I've used these stories with kids at different ability levels for a bunch of different purposes, each time with success. I've used a few of the selections with my journalism class as good examples of human interest stories. I've also used stories such as "The Lottery" for a lesson in making, revising, and confirming predictions while we read. The story on Elian Gonzalez led to some great debate as we listed the pros and cons of Elian staying in the the country or going back to Cuba. It was an excellent critical thinking exercise and it was interesting to see what each kid really valued. And, finally, I've also used it when I just needed a break. Reading aloud to older kids is still very important as they hear good reading modeled well. It would be a resource you would use on a regular basis.

I used this resource in my 5th grade class today and the children had great responses to the reading of Elian Gonzales that is included in this book. They were very passionate about the way they felt and they even discussed this at snack time and lunch time amongst themselves. It was great to see them so engaged about something they read.

I have read a few of these stories in my classroom, and the students enjoy them very much. Really neat discussions have resulted from some of these readings (especially the Elian story).

I would definitely recommend this is a resource for teachers.

Good for 5-10 minute read-a-louds for students who need fluency modeled well; however, limited to middle school due to topical pieces.
