Reading Beliefs

1. Choice in what students read and how much they read influences motivation and achievement.

2. Texts need to have a small challenge in order for students to problem-solve and apply new learning.

3. Students need to do lots of independent reading of self-selected texts.

4. Easy access to books students can and want to read is crucial to readers’ success.

5. Students need to be taught how to choose “just right” books.
