Reflection: Trust and Respect Read with Me: Presenting Book Talks - Section 1: Teacher to Teacher: Lesson Context and Time Frame

 

I understand the vital importance of having a common culture of literature. However, the readers among us have the right to choose their reading material. Students need to see reading as a lifestyle choice rather than as simply academic requirements. Thus, we need to offer them some time to read for pleasure by making time for them to read books of their choice. Research overwhelmingly supports the idea that reading stamina and skill happens when students choose their reading material.
