PHILOSOPHY:
Reading is more than decoding printed words on a page. Reading is an active, communicative, multidisciplinary process that requires context and concentration. A reader should be able to comprehend, question, and possibly act as a result of what an author shares, through: understanding of specialized vocabulary, comprehension of main ideas, recognition of the organization, purpose, and tone of a text, and integration of personal experience to new knowledge.
