Uninterrupted, Sustained, Silent Reading: The Rhetoric and the Practice.
Robertson, Chris; And Others
Journal of Research in Reading, v19 n1 p25-35 Feb 1996
Investigates whether the rhetoric of uninterrupted, sustained, silent reading was evident in primary classrooms (in England) where the practice was professed to operate. Finds that, while the value of a quiet reading time was generally acknowledged, many models operated under the guise of "uninterrupted sustained silent reading," models which were governed by teacher preference or pupil need.
