This episode is all about unpacking some common myths and untruths about reading. While there are so many false beliefs when it comes to students and reading, I am only going to take a little bit of time to address four of them. These insights will increase awareness and will provide a fresh outlook on what is best for students.
I will be sharing some truths to consider when it comes to these 4 myths,
- Myth #1: Children have to read the entire book that they are given.
- Myth #2: The faster a child reads, the better they are at reading.
- Myth #3: Reading comes naturally to kids and is a natural process.
- Myth #4: If my student receives intervention, they are getting what they need so I do not need to work with them in the classroom.
