The Common Core: Looking for 7 minute miracles

The Common Core: Looking for 7 minute miracles | Oakland County ELA Common Core | Scoop.it

As literacy expert Elfrieda H. “Freddy” Hiebert points out, “An additional 7 minutes of reading per day has been shown to differentiate classrooms in which students read well from those in which students read less well [and] can make a huge difference in students’ knowledge acquisition and capacity for reading complex text.”

 

Imagine the power that would accrue if students read an additional 7 minutes in school each day, and another 7 minutes—or more—after school. Imagine what that collective knowledge and wisdom might mean for our nation.
