The ultimate goal for reading in this class is to build a healthy life-long habit that can help you find happiness and success. That is a lofty goal! We take small steps to reach it...
Class Reading Goals
Read what you love - know what you love to read but never be afraid to explore new genres, topics, or authors.a
Always have something to read - be it digital or print, carry something to read everywhere you go.
Read every day - find time to read at least 30 minutes every day you breath.
Reread, read closely, and reflect - know what you read intimately and let it shape you.
Make reading social - find ways to share what you have read with others.
We will meet these goals using two systems, Sustained Silent Literacy and Literature Response Circles (LRCs).
