“If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a hoper, a prayer, a magic bean buyer. If you’re a pretender, come sit by my fire, for we have some flax-golden tales to spin.”
Why Reading Matters
I am a strong believer that reading improves tests scores, makes students better writers, and increases general knowlege. Because reading and self-learning is something that benefits you for a life-time, I encourage my students to read every day. I set aside 10 minutes of class time for silent reading on whatever they choose. I have tried to build a classroom library of books that they want to read and have been able to collect about 75-100 best sellers through donorschoose.org this year. I avoid assigning homework, but ask that students read daily at home about 20 minutes. Combined with their classroom reading that’s 30 minutes per day. I challenge my students to read 20 books each year. I would love your support in encouraging Woodlawn High School students to read every day.
