Win A Copy of Game Changer

Thank you to the more than 750 people who entered – the two winners were randomly drawn and have been notified.  I highly encourage you to purchase your own copy.

 

This morning as I stand in my kitchen making waffles for my four ravenous children, I have also been sneaking some reading in.  After all, isn’t this multitasking at its finest?  The book that keeps pulling me away from the wafflemaker?  It is the new book Game Changer! Book Access for All Kids by the fantastic Donalyn Miller and Colby Sharp.

With its inviting layout, straightforward language, and research-based best practices, this is a must add for any educator who works within literacy.  The book features tried and true fantastic ideas for increasing the access to books for all kids, and not just in the traditional sense of placing books in the hands of children, but also how to help students develop or maintain a positive relationship with reading.  As someone who spends much of my time immersed in the same world of advocacy, I love the realness of the book, its no holds barred advocacy for all kids to have meaningful and personal relationships with books, as well as all of the research cited.  (I geek out on research).

In order to celebrate its release, I am therefore giving away two copies of the book.  This contest is open to the world, so no matter where you are you can read the book.  All you have to do is enter on the form below.  I will pull a winner tomorrow night, Sunday the 11th of November.  If you do not win, please consider purchasing this book on your own, you won’t regret it.

  1. Thank you for keeping us updated on all things literacy-related. I would love to read this and share it with my colleagues!

  2. My son and daughter-in-law, my niece, and I are all teachers. This wonderful book would be shared in three school districts, in four grade levels, and two states. It would be a privelege and and honor to read and share this book.

  3. New to 7th grade but 20 years in teaching. You have inspired me so much and given me that excitement back in teaching that I felt I was losing!!!

  4. Ive been looking forward to reading this book! I’ll probably buy it at NCTE next week but I’d love to win one to give to a colleague! Thanks for the chance!
