Diary of a Reading Teacher: Reading Boot Camp
Over the past ten years I have collected, categorized and
assembled a vast collection of fairy tales, fables, myths,
legends, poems, prose, short stories, and parables -- all free in
the public domain. I, as most teachers, have limited funds or
nonexistent funds to spend on reading materials, so to have
an unlimited supply of materials at my fingertips has been part
of my students’ success. I get excited when I find a new
children’s magazine from 1857 with a serial from Louisa May
Alcott, or a child’s poem from Chaucer. I work with kids who
have very limited access to any literature outside of school.
So, to expose them to a world of enlightened classics is
life-changing for some. I’ve assembled my very own modern
Eclectic Reader from over eighty sources in the public domain.
The collection is vast and varied, from Aesop’s Fables to the
wisdom of Confucius. My Eclectic Reader has ballooned over the
years to cover fluency drills, fairy tales, poems, prose, short stories,
vocabulary lists, wisdom and quotes, riddles, and academic
glossaries for many subjects. It is now over two hundred pages
of reading material that I use during reading Boot Camp and
throughout the year.
