What is well-intentioned but ineffective reading/thinking, and how can one recognize the problem as such?
This passage from Kylene Beers really resonated with me when I read it last year as part of my multi-year action research project on this topic: I once thought that if my students could make an inference, any inference, then my teaching woes would be over…
