[TIPS] Teacher Magazine: Creating Readers: Part I

http://www.teachermagazine.org/tm/articles/2007/09/05/06millermentor1.h18.html

This, coutesty of the ASCD newsletter again. A great article about how one teacher turned her students into book lovers – reading 50-60 books per year.

And her methods have also produced more than anecdotal results: Last year, her students received a 100 percent passing rate on the reading portion of the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills, with 90 percent receiving a "recommended" score.”

It all comes down to the teacher again, doesn’t it?
