Open Access Graduate Research Paper
"I like reading. I just don't like reading class." How many middle school reading teachers have heard these thoughts expressed by students? If teachers become less enthusiastic each year as they plod through the basal, page by page, skill sheet by skill sheet, is it any wonder that students have trouble generating an interest in reading? Many students have a misconception of reading; they perceive reading as the basal text and the workbook that accompanies it. They have not discovered that reading is the process of constructing meaning from the printed page in order to gain knowledge and enjoyment.
