Reading Specialists

Question: What is the goal of the reading specialist?

Answer/Quote: “ ‘So you want to be reading specialists? Well, I have news for you… 60% of the kids are going to learn to read no matter what you do. You are here to learn how to teach the others.’ This is what Dr. Jeanne Chall said to my first class in graduate school while studying about teaching children to read.” P. 34.

Comment: Can’t be stated any more clearly than that. RayS.

Title: “School-based Model for Struggling Readers.” Sally Grimes. Reading Today (April/May 2012), 34.
