“Books are a students’ passport to entering and actively participating in a global society with the empathy, compassion, and knowledge it takes to become the problem solvers the world needs.”
–Laura Robb

 

Research shows that reading and literacy directly impacts students’ academic success and personal growth. To help promote the importance of daily independent reading and understanding the particular needs of students, we’ve collaborated with renowned educator and literacy expert Laura Robb to develop diverse and inclusive classroom libraries and genre libraries for PreK through 8th grade reading instruction.

Penguin Random House Education Classroom Libraries support students, teachers and schools by:

  • Promoting choice and volume in reading;

  • Providing the most timely, engaging, and diverse voices that harness the power of literacy;

  • Fostering a lifelong love for reading;

  • Developing a reading culture in and out of the classroom.

  • Increase background knowledge and vocabulary as well as creates empathy and compassion for others;

  • Plan interactive reading lessons throughout a unit of study to enlarge students’ vocabulary;

  • Apply reading strategies and literary elements to build students’ critical thinking;

  • Analyze texts, text structures and literary features to improve comprehension through discussion and student reading notebooks;

  • Differentiate reading instruction with genre-based instructional libraries so all students can improve their reading skill;

 


Author, teacher, coach, and international speaker, Laura Robb has completed more than 43 years of teaching in grades 4-8, and she returns to teach striving readers each year.
