Marie Clay As the child approaches a new text he is entitled to an introduction so that when he reads, the gist of the... story can provide some guide for a fluent reading. Marie Clay “A text is at a students' independent reading level if they can read it with about 95% accuracy.” - Marie B. Clay, "An observation survey of early literacy achievement" (1993) "Reading... a message-gaining, problem-solving activity which increases in power and flexibility the more it is practiced." Marie Clay, Becoming Literate: The Construction of Inner Control, p. 6 If children are apparently unable to learn, we should assume that we have not as yet found the right way to teach them.
