Weekend Ed. Quote ~ June 23

“When you sit in front of a kindergartner with a stopwatch in your hand, and she can’t bark out letters fast enough to earn the score of proficient, and you’re recording all of it, you aren’t teaching her to read, you’re teaching her to hate reading.”
~Philip Kovacs, Associate Professor of Education at the University Alabama at Huntsville.

Great start to our Spring Digital Reading Course from PBS TeacherLine

We’ve had a great orientation to our Spring Digital Reading Course from PBS TeacherLine. It’s been great to virtually meet each of you! I have enjoyed getting to know you in our Introduction Forums. We are all connecting and learning, each from a different U.S. state at times that are most convenient for us.

Today begins our first week! I so appreciate the emphasis this week on the Joyful aspect of Reading. Please check your email or the course Emails Forum for my Week 1 Tips Email.

I am taking the idea of Joyful reading to heart and this Friday, I am scheduling a “Read Only” morning. I plan to turn off all technology and read! (Good thing I’m on Spring Break or it would be curtains at the university!)

Reading is one of the joys of life

There are too many books I haven’t read, too many places I haven’t seen, too many memories I haven’t kept long enough.

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ December 2

“If the true learning objective is to ignite a student’s passion for literature and provide an opportunity to demonstrate understanding through a variety of modalities, then maybe it’s time to move beyond the book report.” ~ Beth Holland, Projects to Engage Middle School Readers

This quote, like last weekend’s quote, was suggested by one of the teachers in the PBS course I facilitate. Thank you, K.L.!
