NY Times article “lobbies to save a love of reading”

In case you missed last week’s School Book article in the NY Times while you were out playing in the snow, a fellow BookTalk volunteer was kind enough to send it along for us to share:

Earlier this school year, students at P.S. 188 attended a literacy event with Chancellor Dennis M. Walcott.

Anne Stone and Jeff Nichols debate how students are asked to interpret what they read and demonstrate comprehension though standardized questions and quantifiable answers:  http://www.nytimes.com/schoolbook/2012/01/20/dear-governor-lobby-to-save-a-love-of-reading/

Now as volunteers working with dozens of students every day as they learn to read and interpret stories — we’d like to know your thoughts!  Would you join these two parents in boycotting standardized tests or are do you believe they are a necessary part of the reading curriculum?
