Noteworthy Numbers

saw this in the March ASCD Educational Leadership

66 The percentage of children ages 9-17 surveyed who say they will always want to read books printed on paper, even when e-books are available.

47 The percentage of children surveyed who cite "giving me time away from technology" as a reason they read books.

91 The percentage of children ages 6-17 who say they are more likely to finish a book they choose themselves.

Does what we know reflect in what we do in the classroom?
