An Edutopia article last year discussed how the Walter Bracken STEAM Academy Elementary School, a Title 1 magnet school in urban Las Vegas, Nevada, created a culture of reading by introducing "Series Reading" across all grade levels. What was the result?
– By fifth grade, students are two and a half years above grade level on the STAR Reading Assessment.
– Instead of talking about the latest TV shows, students excitedly discuss the books they read.
– Students are often caught reading books under their desks during other lessons.
