"If a boy is told that reading a graphic novel isn't real reading--if reading is seen as work or punishment--who's going to start to think of something as enjoyment. If boys don't develop a love of reading, they're not going to get to any of those other books that people want them to read."

What do you think about independent reading?

What do you think about independent reading? | Australian School Libraries | Scoop.it

A lot of people—teachers included—like the idea of independent reading, or as it is sometimes called, sustained silent reading (SSR).  But when they see it in practice— well, it just doesn’t look like learning is supposed to look. Here’s the secret not everyone knows: independent reading is a key component of good teaching. Sure, the classroom may seem quiet, the students relaxed, but important work is going on inside the children’s heads. They are learning how to become good readers.
