Readicide: How Schools Are Killing Reading and What You Can Do About It By Kelly Gallagher Cover Image
ISBN: 9781571107800
Availability: IN WAREHOUSE - Usually Ships in 3-7 Business Days
Published: Stenhouse Publishers - February 2nd, 2009

Students don’t need tests, they need a life-long love of reading and a critical eye for periodicals or a broader media literacy. Gallagher addresses these needs by creating templates that are readily usable, enable student success, and theoretically valid. The article of the week assignment has prompted rich discussions of current events, and the one-page independent reading assessment is a favorite of my incoming freshmen who have grown weary of the typical middle-level book reports. ~ Reviewed by Bonnie Winchester
