You Can't Hide in R[superscript 5]: Restructuring Independent Reading to Be More Strategic and Engaging
Clausen-Grace, Nicki; Kelley, Michelle
Voices from the Middle, v14 n3 p38-49 Mar 2007
Clausen-Grace and Kelley believe that when it comes to independent reading, the question is not whether to use it, but rather how we can implement it to get the most benefit for our students. Here, they discuss the supporting research, defuse potential problems, identify characteristics of effective SSR programs, and outline their own action research project, including graphic organizers. (Contains 3 figures.)
