How can someone teach kids to read, do interventions with those struggling with reading, and inspire kids to read more not be a reader? She really caused me to stop and think.
Her justification was that kids who struggle with reading need to get the skills they need to deal with the informational text they encounter each day. If that can be accomplished, it is a win. And that is all she is concerned about when it comes to reading.
Does everyone need to be a reader?
I feel like I am a bit of a reading missionary.
Maybe I should be less of a zealot??
