The Reluctant Reader by Heather Cato

The Reluctant Reader by Heather Cato | Education | Scoop.it

I never liked reading as a kid, but I can vividly remember the first time I took my students down to our antique, two-sizes-too small library to check out books. With the signatures on my diploma still wet, I was excited to begin working with my students on all of the great teaching strategies that I had learned in college to improve their reading skills..."

 

SOOOO important!!!

Common Core: The Non-Fiction Conundrum

Common Core: The Non-Fiction Conundrum | Education | Scoop.it

..the fear is that content area teachers will not do their part. For those teachers in content areas, specifically in STEM areas, educators will be tasked with how to integrate reading materials into a subject that is already crowded and doesn't seem to lend itself naturally to literary endeavors.
