Creating Stronger Readers
What would it take to make all the children we serve strong readers?
It's a bold question to ponder as you prepare for the coming school year. ASCD's Educational Leadership (EL) summer issue, "Strong Readers All," shares stories of how to successfully help all learners improve their reading skills—by using nontraditional approaches at every grade level. These articles describe research, strategies, and revamped school structures. Other articles profile schoolwide strategies that made a serious difference during the earliest reading years.
EL also offers two classic articles from past issues—from two trusted voices in reading instruction: Richard L. Allington and Cris Tovani.
