What a great way to show the connection between reading and learning. I teach a class called ‘Reading for Pleasure,’ an English elective…over 300 kids a year enroll, about 1/3 repeat the class if they can…I’m always struggling for ways to ‘prove’ student impact, besides students’ own reflections. Grades are the way to, as you observed, quiet the critics! I’ll be copying this idea!
