The Book Whisperer

“Consuming a literary diet built exclusively on the classics does not provide students with the opportunity to investigate their own personal tastes in reading material and narrows their perspective of reading to the school task of hyper-analyzing literature. (Miller, Donalyn p. 124)”

“I have no issue with standardized testing per see; I believe that students who cannot pass the minimum expectations set by these tests are not good readers. What I have grown to mistrust is how the high-stakes nature of these tests has disrupted quality reading instruction (p. 133).”
