Please respond as a reply to this discussion. Your response needs to be posted by class time on Thursday, February 11.
Below are prompts to guide your response:
Reflect on your reading habits. How often and what do you read?
Which of the benefits of reading do you think is most important, and why?
Schools claim that reading is important, yet students often graduate high school (and college) saying that they will probably never read another book. How can schools change their approach to reading in order to build readers rather than reading scores?
As always, the following two components are required for credit:
At least one direct quotation from the article itself as part of one of your claims.
At least one direct reference to someone else's response (either in agreement or disagreement with their claim).
