Read Across America: A Book List for All Grades, All Subjects

Happy Read Across America Day!

March 2nd is Read Across America Day. If you are thinking “but, I’m a math teacher”: not so fast.

“It’s common to believe that literacy instruction is solely the charge of language arts teachers,” says Rebecca Alber in an article for Edutopia, “but, frankly, this just is not so.”  Students with effective communication skills are more likely to thrive in any classroom. Reading helps develop the writing, listening, and speaking skills that are critical to success in the classroom.

Here is a list of books to fit every subject. Several of them are available to read online.

Challenge your students to think inside the cover.
