Reflection: Accountability Building a Culture of Reading - Section 3: Timed reading and contract


I am very happy with how authentic my student goal setting seemed to be today. Each student chose an area of focus that, based on my review of their data, seems very fitting and appropriate. I am really excited to try this structure for reading time this year and am hopeful that the goals the students created for themselves today will provide the right balance between student choice/engagement and accountability.

Objective: SWBAT read and comprehend literature and informational text independently and proficiently by practicing reading skills daily with choice texts.

Big Idea: In order to become a more fluent reader, students need to read regularly and at their grade level. To support this, it is essential for a teacher to set aside time for choice reading in the language arts classroom.
