Reading: The Core Skill:Every Child, Every Day
Richard L. Allington and Rachael E. Gabriel Here, we outline six elements of instruction that every child should experience every day. Each of these elements can be implemented in any district and any school, with any curriculum or set of materials, and without additional funds. All that's necessary is for adults to make the decision to do it. 1. The research base on student-selected reading is robust and conclusive: Students read more, understand more, and are more likely to continue reading when they have the opportunity to choose what they read. We're not saying that students should never read teacher- or district-selected texts. The experience of choosing in itself boosts motivation. Some teachers say they find it difficult to provide a wide selection of texts because of budget constraints. There is, in fact, no way they ever could. 2. Good readers read with accuracy almost all the time. 3. Understanding what you've read is the goal of reading. 4. 5. 6. Things That Really Matter
