Reader's Choice


There's been a big hullabaloo over reader's choice of late in academic circles. Many teachers feel like they HAVE to only have their students reading the classics or they are somehow depriving them of a mainstay of their education. Heinemann has a forum and a video up by Nancie Atwell that reply to those critics. As I am advocating for reader's choice in my classroom this year, it is nice to have a validation of what I am doing from the leaders in the field.
