What it is:  Readicide is a new ebook from Kelly Gallagher about how schools are killing the love of reading.  It is being made available here Jan. 13 and 14 as a free download.  I downloaded Readicide earlier today and am loving it.  The ebook reminds me of what made me love reading, the times when I hated reading, and how my students feel about reading.  It is inspiring and may just give you the jolt you need to shake up your reading program and make your classroom the place where students fall in love with reading again (or the very first time).


How to integrate Readicide into the classroom:   Download Readicide ASAP!   Then send to your administration and fellow teaching staff to read.  Open up communication about your reading program at the next staff meeting, be critical.  Lets start a reading revolution!!


Tips: Download today while the ebook is free 🙂  I vote “readicide” to be considered as a new word for Webster to add to the dictionary.

  1. Glad you found my link to Readicide—-Kelly’s book has changed the way that I think about reading instruction in our schools. It’s convinced me that there needs to be a change—and that classroom teachers have responsibility for leading that change.

    I also hope you’ll stop back to the Radical between January 18 and January 22 for our asynchronous conversation with Kelly on his new book. Here’s a link with more details:

    Rock on,
