"What if there was a time when things slowed down? No rotations, activities, or worksheets—just you, your kids, and books. Would you take it?" —Debbie Miller and Barbara Moss

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.

DEAR and SSR aren’t enough. 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.

“When we set children loose day after day with no focus or support, it can lead to fake reading and disengagement,” write Debbie and Barbara. “It’s our job to equip children with the tools they need when we’re not there.” Read No More Independent Reading Without Support and find out how.
