Larry Ferlazzo talks with Donalyn Miller about close reading, Common Core, empowering students to be readers, and her popular reading books, The Book Whisperer, and Reading in the Wild.


Donalyn Miller has worked with a variety of upper elementary and middle school students and currently teaches fifth grade at O.A. Peterson Elementary in Forth  Worth, Texas. In her popular book, The Book Whisperer, Donalyn reflects on her  journey to become a reading teacher and describes how she inspires and motivates her middle school students to read 40 or more books a year. In her latest book, Reading in the Wild, Donalyn collects responses from 900 adult readers and uses
this information to teach lifelong reading habits to her students. Donalyn currently facilitates the community blog, The Nerdy Book Club and co-writes a regular column for Scholastic’s Principal-to-Principal Newsletter.
