State Teachers of the Year: Independent Reading is Extremely Important

How important is independent reading to a child's overall success? How often do teachers dedicate time to independent reading in the classroom?

Earlier this week, we released the results of a survey we fielded last month of the 2015 State Teachers of the Year. Today we have a bit more to share.

We asked a series of questions about independent reading inside and outside of the classroom. Here's what we learned.

1) The teachers almost universally (98 percent) agreed that independent reading is very or extremely important to a child's overall success.

2) Many of them dedicate class time for student independent reading (one-third said they find time every day), but say a "lack of time" is the top barrier to allowing more of it.

3) We asked the teachers to share advice for how they inspire students to read independently outside of the classroom. Here is some of what they shared.

We'd love to hear your ideas as well!

You said on your other blog about this survey: "Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook over the course of the next week, and check out our sister blog (On Our Minds), for more quotes, stats and findings from our survey of the 2015 State Teachers of the Year." I don't see anything on the "On Our Minds" blog about the survey but I'd love to see more quotes, stats, and findings from it.

Hi Daniel, thanks for the

Hi Daniel, thanks for the comment. Here is a post where we shared a list of books that the teachers said they like to recommend to students. We sorted it by the grade ranges of the teachers who recommended them. We asked them " We've shared a handful of other quotes on Twitter, and will continue to this week!
