I was just looking through some of my old photos from one of my school visits to Teachers College and New York City public schools when I came across this interesting factoid in the form of a chart:reading
|Level||Time to Complete One Book||Time to Move Up a Level *|
|G, H, I||15-20 minutes||10 days|
|J, K, L||20-40 minutes||10 days|
|M, N||60 minutes||15 days|
|O, P, Q||2 hours||21 days|
|R, S, T||4 hours||45 days|
|* BUT, you must read an hour a day!|
So, what’s the take-away messages?
You can improve your reading ability just by reading books.
You must read a lot for it have an impact.
The higher the books become/the more advanced a reader you become, the longer it takes to complete a book, as well as move up to a higher text difficulty band.
