Diane over at Deep Thinking posted about Good vs. Bad Readers.
Most of the students said that good readers do stuff like read a lot, read long books, read the whole book (not just the first two pages), read the hard books, read fast, are good spellers, remember what they read, try different ways to read, and other similar comments. They said that bad readers don’t read, read books that are too hard so they don’t finish them, read only the first page or two, read only one kind of book, read only books that are baby books, etc.
In some ways, I’ve pondered the same myself. The question now is whether I can help create students at MPOW that are “good, reading children”.
