As a Reading teacher I find that it is critical to have students read extensively. I am creating a new curriculum that is challenging, rigorous, plus creative. Reading comprehension skills separates the "passive" unskilled reader from the "active" readers. Skilled readers don't just read, they interact with the text. To help a beginning reader understand this concept, you might make them privy to the dialogue readers have with themselves while reading. The purpose of reading is comprehension — getting meaning from written text. A major goal of reading comprehension instruction, therefore, is to help students develop the knowledge, skills, and experiences they must have if they are to become competent and enthusiastic readers. I wish to have an curriculum of books that are culturally diverse as well as meaningful and enjoyable. By implementing new reading materials, my classroom will be able to have more of a variety in reading materials and also change our students' lives for the better because they will love school and feel success plus --- having fun while learning!
