While I understand a publisher's need to make a profit, they are seriously damaging their own credibility as well as infringing upon the public's Freedom to Read rights. Libraries have always stood for free access to information and reading. Shame on publishers.

25 Ways Schools Can Promote Literacy And Independent Reading - TeachThought

25 Ways Schools Can Promote Literacy And Independent Reading - TeachThought | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it

In the age of the Common Core and its emphasis upon having students take on more challenging text, independent reading and student choice can easily take a back seat to the demands of increased rigor. However, in a balanced literacy program, they remain important.

Motivation and choice play key roles in reading.

And, strong and capable readers are those who read widely and diversely in a wide variety of genres and text types.

In the quest to build capable readers, promoting independent, self-selected reading remains key. Creating ravenous, lifelong readers doesn’t just happen, it takes a schoolwide culture to help reach that goal.

Converging Recommendations for Culturally Responsive Literacy Practices: Students with Learning Disabilities, English Language Learners, and Socioculturally Diverse Learners
GwynethJones's insight:

Another important article from

TLDR

Abstract: 

"This study examines culturally responsive pedagogy across the fields of special education, multicultural literacy education, and teaching English language learners. A systematic review of recommendations identified culturally responsive practices in five key areas: dialogue, collaboration, visual representation, explicit instruction, and inquiry. Educators are encouraged to adopt a critical and responsive stance that incorporates students' cultural knowledge and lived experiences when implementing these recommendations. Creating classrooms that promote culturally responsive and effective instruction is grounded in the definition of literacy as a social practice and leads to more equitable learning opportunities in all areas."

As a English and History pre-service teacher I really encourage the reading of books and for students to search and guide their own learning experiences. However, as this unit is focusing on the digital literacy aspect of learning, reading online and through electronic devices can be as effective as a physical copy. Many of takeaways from the article, such as lower stress and increased vocabulary, is transferable between mediums and can have a seminal impact on the development of digital skills and literacy skills.
