"I am an advocate of reading aloud to children, and I teach grade 5. I feel like it’s a confession. It’s the first step, and one I would hope everyone would follow.
In the early grades, I think most teachers read to children because they can’t read too well themselves. However, as children get older, reading aloud seems to diminish. When I ask my students in grade 5 how many of them have parents who read aloud, sometimes one child raises his or her hand. Sometimes, I have a class where no one raises their hand."
