Readicide: How Schools Are Killing Reading and What You Can Do About It
Jun 26, 2013
This is a MUST-READ for English/Language Arts teachers. Gallagher does a phenomenal job balancing statistics to support his theory for why American schools are killing reading. My only (ever so slight) criticism would be that there could be even more emphasis on practical techniques that teachers could use in their classrooms. Gallagher offers numerous techniques and as a more experienced teacher, I found it easy to employ his philosophies, but I felt as if there could be even more activities for beginning teachers. Teachers who completely agree with Gallagher's thoughts will find many gems in this complex, articulate book, as they will learn supplementary techniques to employ in their classrooms and will have justification for their teaching practices.
