Don't know where I stand on the issue of
using competition to encourage reading. All five of our reading teachers use Accelerated Reader and I argue how much I hate the low-level complexity and extrinsic motivation involved with it, but they are unyielding and it is still in use at my school.... What do you guys think?
I am always honored to be invited to work with the excellent folks who are involved with the CYBILS and I sure hope everyone has had a chance to look at the nominees and winners. If not, here's the winner's link!
