Turning around Our Perceptions and Practices, Then Our Readers
Enriquez, Grace; Jones, Stephanie; Clarke, Lane W.
Reading Teacher, v64 n1 p73-76 Sep 2010
In this column, the authors encourage teachers to resist using the unhelpful term "struggling reader" and instead focus on who the reader is and what will motivate her or him. The authors present a five-part framework for meeting the needs of all readers and argue that focusing on students' negative behaviors during reading creates a missed opportunity for the teacher to turn herself or himself around and see the reader from a different perspective. (Contains 1 figure.)
