As I read “Creating Readers” by Donalyn Miller I realized a lot of fascinating tips that I could use later on once I become a teacher. I was really surprised by the fact that she loves reading. I don’t think I have heard of a person who is that into reading. Most of my teachers would tell us the importance of reading but did not always make us read in class a certain amount of time. We also had things to do after we finished an assignment and reading was an option but no one ever did because they didn’t really enforce it. While interning at the elementary school I realized that the teacher I interned for also had her kids read for about 15 minutes a day. I think that is a good way to get kids into reading. I also really like her opinion on letting the students choose the books they get to read. I also would have to agree with her not assessing kids after every book. I think that it makes kids loose motivation towards reading and only read for the purpose of not failing a quiz. I do think that incentives are a good way to get kids to read a little more so I would have to disagree with her on that; but I can also see where she is coming from on not giving kids incentives. To be honest though I would much rather read if I got an incentive out of it instead of just reading with no reward in the end. Her way of teaching does sound like something I would like to do in one of my classes. I would like kids to read but again I do not want to force them into reading if that’s not what they want to do because I feel what they do when I have to read. I would give them incentives to those who do choose to read though. Overall ,this was a good article and I learned a lot from it.
