Books are Enough

The Power of Free, Self-Selected Reading

Stream of Consciousness- Teacher Dilemma

Lots of books out there- read! No says the district. No says the school. Phonics workbooks please! Worksheets please! Computer programs please.  Yes you will. Subversive thoughts in my mind. No I do not -please. Darn! I forgot to give the diagnostic test you expect each week- please.

Books abound with characters good and evil. Excitement abounds with places to go in my mind. Students want to read. No. Phonics workbook please. B-A-T please.  Oh and if you sneeze- off with your head please. We have a test to prepare for. Throw down those books- please. Worksheets out please.  Skill-drill-kill please. NO. No I say. Please leave me alone to read.
