“Confessions of a Reading Arsonist”
Successful strategies for building lifelong readers: great ideas you can put in place tomorrow!
With his trademark combination of humor and heart, Steven Layne tackles one of the most significant issues in reading instruction today: how to engage reluctant readers. Teaching the skill of reading is viewed by many educators as a major objective; teaching the will of reading is too often an afterthought. Dr. Layne's charismatic blend of anecdotes and practical suggestions for the classroom are sure to fan the flame of literacy into a raging inferno, inspiring teachers as well as their students to keep the bedside lamp on just a little bit later into the night.
Dr. Steven L. Layne serves as Professor of Literacy Education at Judson University in Elgin, IL, USA, where he teaches graduate courses and directs the School of Education’s Master of Literacy program.  Dr. Layne is a respected international literacy consultant, motivational keynote speaker, and featured author throughout the world.  Author of 23 books, Steve is currently serving as a member of the Board of Directors of the International Reading Association.
