ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the lack of reading proficiency among school children in the U.S. The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) and the U.S. No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) have done little to improve proficiency. Sherry Gorsuch of O'Connor Elementary in Texas and Greg Mikulich of Marion Elementary in Michigan have raised proficiency at their schools through effective reading strategies. One approach is to reduce students' stress and use tasks that children can complete.
