Most Recently Read Book:

Readicide: How Schools Are Killing Reading and What You Can Do About It

By Kelly Gallagher

Another book every reading teacher should read! I have read so many great reading books lately that I might not have picked up if it wasn't for National Boards. It has really gotten me back on track as far as reading literature about teaching. This book has some really great ideas in it. Gallagher talks about a balance when it comes to teaching reading. We can't overdo books and we can't just tell a kid to read a book and then give them a test. There has to be a happy medium. I could not agree more. I just wish other teachers would read this and see all the statistics he has about reading and test scores. There are some remarkable statistics and tidbits of information in this short book. I'm anxious to share it with other teachers!!!
