I like Crista’s idea of scheduling reading time for high schoolers. Much like Darrell mentioned, I rarely see my grades 7–12 students read for fun because they have little or no free time at school. The more I think about it, the more I’d like to put reading time in the schedule.
Except the schedule is already full. I could carve it out of class time, but we already have trouble getting everything packed in there. I could take time from study hall, but there would surely be an uproar from students anxious to get homework done. If you’ve done this, how did you make it work? Any other thoughts or suggestions?
