of society and the workplace; and for personal fulfillment. Among these texts are
fiction and nonfiction, classic and contemporary works.

   1. Invite a student to come to the reading table. Tell the student to bring a
      text that he has been reading.
   2. Help the student to select a 100- to 200-word excerpt from the book.
   3. Ask the student to read the excerpt aloud.

      make a record of the words read correctly as well as those read
