Reading Critically - courtesy of ASCD Smart Brief


  • How to teach students to read critically
    Veteran school administrator Ben Johnson in this blog writes about the importance of teaching students to read with a critical eye. Students must first be encouraged to love reading, and then be taught to do so actively through techniques, such as reading with a pen in hand to take notes and identify key concepts, processes that could be made easier through the use of digital textbooks. Educators also should model reading critically with students to help them develop the habit with every assignment, he writes.
