How schools are killing reading and what you can do about it
Read-i-cide n: The systematic killing of the love of reading, often exacerbated by the inane, mind-numbing practices found in schools.
Is the love of reading dying in our schools? If so, what can we do about it?
This provocative book recognizes our schools as a new and significant contributor to the decline of reading and suggests that schools are furthering this decline through standard instructional practices. This insightful book provides teachers, literacy coaches, and administrators with specific steps to reverse the downward spiral in reading — steps that will help prevent the loss of another generation of readers.
