I made these posters and activities when parents and guardians of my high school students asked why I encouraged reading so much. Showing them the research behind daily reading (and providing free places to download books!) helped me converse with parents.
You can see the design of this organizational bundle for secondary teachers in the pictures and preview. Where copyright allows, I have created editable materials. If you need something specific, I can probably add it to the bundle.
