Why students that read more end up to be more successful at studies?
“Pupils who can read are overwhelmingly more likely to succeed at school, achieve good qualifications, and subsequently enjoy a fulfilling and rewarding career. In addition to its substantial practical benefits, reading is one of life’s profound joys.”
Afflerbach suggested that for children to become successful readers, they need to take responsibility for their own assessment, this includes; ensuring that they know how they are making progress and how they can progress further; throughout my experience on placements, I have seen that this can be a catalyst for further progression, involving the children in their own learning allows them a sense of responsibility and enabled them to partially take control of their own learning. OFSTED support Cowie here in stating that: “Children should be involved in the assessment of their progress and receive regular supportive feedback on their work”.
