The Myth of Learn to Read/Read to Learn
By Laura Robb
For years, many elementary- and middle-school teachers have shaped their teaching practices around the deeply rooted myth of “Learning to Read and Reading to Learn.” The fundamental premise of the myth is as follows: “Learning to Read” happens in the early grades (K–3) and consists primarily of decoding and memorizing basic sight words. “Reading to Learn” begins in fourth grade and consists mostly of reading for information. Although the myth and the practices associated with it do not by any means tell the entire reading story, they have influenced reading instruction in many classrooms for years. The problem? The myth and its practices aren’t working. What many researchers have now shown is that for all children, learning to read and reading to learn should be happening simultaneously and continuously, from preschool through middle school — and perhaps beyond. And that’s not all. Teaching comprehension has now emerged as a critical piece of learning to read, which the narrow emphasis on phonics and sight words in the early years of reading fails to address.

AKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -
With school just around the corner, Calcasieu Parish Schools want to remind parents and students of grade reconfigurations this year.

“Iowa High is now 6-12, and J.I. Watson which historically was PreK-8 is now PreK-5,” said Kirby Smith with the school district.
(...)
“Again, the old adage is ‘You learn to read, and then you read to learn.’ So that primary setting PreK-2, will really allow us to focus on that,” said Smith.
