Example text

I can tell you that children who are avid readers already are much less harmed by inflexible reading policies, since they can enjoyably read almost any book. But poor readers can’t, and will be further turned off to reading. If you can figure out a way to get schools to shift their emphasis from teacher-assigned reading to student-choice reading, please let me know. 85 Look for schools that give kids time to read in class. Teachers can say to students, “Sit down now and quietly read,” and kids will do it.

41 Houses without porches can still have friendly reading spots on decks or patios, in tree houses, or indoors in special reading corners. Children seem to love special little places where they can curl up away from the world. Just provide reading material for these spots. 42 Try to live within walking or biking distance of a library. This encourages children to become independent in selecting and bringing home their own books. 43 Plan special rituals around book buying. For example, before you go on vacation every year, make the day before you leave a special visit-the-bookstore day.

Many elementary schools do allow for a little free reading time in class, and the practice is well respected enough that I think you can question schools that don’t do it. 86 Look for schools that use little or no ability grouping, especially with reading. There are many problems with tracking students, but a major one is that when most of the students in a class have the same reading level, it’s almost irresistible for the teacher to require that everyone read the same book. There is little incentive for offering independent reading options.
