What Every Principal Should Know about Teaching Reading.
Carbo, Marie; Cole, Robert W.
Instructional Leader, v8 n1 p1-3,12 Jan 1995
This article on what principals should know about reading addresses the issue of how to prepare students to become competent lifelong readers. It lays the foundation for bringing about high gains in reading motivation and achievement, and presents five basic premises and sets of recommendations for each premise. The premises are: (1) children learn from modeling; (2) it is natural for children to enjoy reading and to be motivated to read; (3) learning to read should be easy and fun; (4) good readers spend time practicing reading; and (5) students need to be stretched with high-level reading materials.
