I read today in Pathways to CC on page 18 - "Of course, in order for students to make the necessary progress, they need at least 45 minutes in school and more time at home to read books that they can read with 96% accuracy, fluency and comprehension.  The challenge here is that students need access to lots and lots of high-interest, accessible books that have been leveled."
What I hear for me is that I need to provide more time for students to just read in class - not be instructed, but read a book that is at their level and talk about it to me or another student.
This also needs to be seen alongside "complex text" that we need "high-interest, accessible books that have been leveled".
