What is a Bookroom?
While a classroom library might be that class’s core set of texts, a bookroom is a shared space for books in a school. The bookroom can create a “revolving” collection to engage students in reading and provide extra instructional materials.
An ideal bookroom provides what every teacher needs and what every student wants. A bookroom provides books for independent readings, multiple copies of books (usually packs of 6) to support small-group instruction, mentor texts for interactive read-alouds, and books for shared and partner reading.
What Is The Role Of The Bookroom In Instruction?
The sections of the bookroom should be arranged to support instruction, with the resources organized by content, standards, and so on. Standards tell teachers what to teach—but teachers need the freedom to choose the resources that best engage their students.
