Books are Enough

The Power of Free, Self-Selected Reading

What is Common Core?

Another chance to drive a nail into the coffins of kids who otherwise would develop into book loving citizens… (our main goal)

I do not worry about summer reading loss as much as I worry about reading loss DURING the school year. Students forced to do worksheets, skills practice and close readings of esoteric text is not my idea of a shindig. 

If you want to cripple young readers and demoralize older ones- Common Core (with its massive testing) is a hell of a plan.
