Helping Destiny find a "just right" book
Destiny is a fourth grader at Claremont Immersion Elementary in Arlington, VA, where students spend half of the day in English and half of the day in Spanish. Destiny is choosing a new book for Spanish independent reading time. Her teacher, Alejandra Rojas, has some ideas about what a "just right" book — something challenging but not too difficult, and something enjoyable. Miss Rojas shows the importance of getting to know students' strengths, challenges, and interests in supporting their reading, as well as the power of a meaningful conversation.
