Welcome to Making Reading Our Business!

This wiki contains the work of our Osseo LMS Professional Learning Community (2008-09) to create lesson plans using reading strategies that help students make connections with what they are reading.

We started by reading Sharon Grimes's book, Reading is our Business. We then began implementing her ideas in our media centers. What fun we had! Click on the links in the left sidebar for the type of lesson you want. You will find book titles, lesson plans, and activities. The Assessment link will provide general tools to use for assessing your students.

I hope more and more LMS from across the state will now add to our body of work as a result of a presentation at MEMO 2008 Fall Conference. I can't wait to try out your lessons!

Enjoy!
