This literacy book offers a powerful solution for teachers who want to improve their students' reading ability. It explores SSR's effect on the various dimensions of literacy, reading and writing proficiency, vocabulary and spelling skills and content comprehension, by summarising current research and sharing feedback from teachers, students and administrators. Finally, he demonstrates how teachers can adapt SSR for their classes' unique needs without interfering with mandated curriculum or lesson plans.
