Books are Enough

The Power of Free, Self-Selected Reading

On ignoring evidence…

I agree with this teacher that the use of “READ 180” is policy gone wrong. It is not needed and contributes to the murder of reading by slow drip. There are more effective ways to help students- how about book floods and letting them READ A LOT!?

Why are we wasting billions on computer programs and packaged materials? Why are we forcing kids to read incomprehensible text with a vain notion that “harder is better?”

Why is the International Reading Association going along with this foolish malpractice?
