article of the week
Kelly recognizes that part of the reason his students struggle with reading is because they lack prior knowledge and background. They can decode the words, but the words remain meaningless without a foundation of knowledge. To help build his students’ prior knowledge, he assigns them an Article of the Week every Monday morning.
Below you will find the articles Kelly assigned this year (2018-2019) to his students. The most recent post is at the top of the list. Please note, all articles are subject to the copyright protections stipulated by the original source.
