Pam Allyn, Global Ambassador for Scholastic’s Read Every Day. Lead a Better Life. Global Literacy Campaign, shares two important messages on reading and the Common Core State Standards.
Pam emphasizes reading volume and how we can challenge children to stretch their “reading muscles” every day.
Pam stresses the importance of exposing children to a wide range of genres, from nonficiton to literary texts, and helping them to build links between the two.
