NCREL's Learning Point, v1 n2 Spr-Sum 1999
This theme issue of the NCREL's (North Central Regional Educational Laboratory's) "Learning Point" focuses on how reading engages children. The cover story article is an interview (Marianne Kroeger and Stephanie Blaser) with Mary Foertsch, from NCREL, on what types of innovative strategies teachers employ to help students become engaged readers. A special pull-out section offers 7 practical reading tips to share with parents, and "Checkpoints in Reading"--a grade-specific guide to help parents better understand their children's reading development at the kindergarten, third grade, sixth grade, ninth grade, and twelfth grade levels.
