Other school have students meet a certain words per minute in a stressful timed readings. Where in the real world, do adults have to read at a certain numbers of word per minute? Maybe if you go into radio or television, you would have to make sure you use your time on air effectively but no one would be timing your reading speed.

These type of ‘techniques’ not only do not benefit the student – it sets them up for failure. These cause anxiety in the child.

Reading is like this is not enjoyable. Most children end up despising reading and writing.

Why? Because similar techniques are use for ‘teaching’ writing. Kids are giving timed test to write ‘a story’ or some unrelated prompt to start a story. Who can really enjoy writing like that?
