Description
We know children learn to read by reading. Is independent reading valuable enough to use precious classroom minutes on? Yes, writes Debbie Miller and Barbara Moss, but only if that time is purposeful.

Research shows that independent reading must be accompanied by intentional instruction and conferring. Debbie and Barbara clear a path for you to take informed action that makes a big difference, with:

  • a rationale for independent reading that’s worth finding the time for
  • research evidence on its effectiveness and instructional best practices
  • a framework with 10 teaching tactics for starting and sustaining success.
Series overview
This series helps teachers examine common, ineffective classroom practices and replace them with practices supported by research and professional wisdom. In each book a practicing educator and an education researcher identify an ineffective practice; summarise what the research suggests about why; and detail research-based, proven practices to replace it and improve student learning.
