Independent silent reading is an important reading practice that promotes and encourages the development of various reading skills. Sustained Silent Reading and other similar independent silent reading programs, strive to create a more natural and aesthetic reading environment that explicit, direct teaching does not always manage to do. As educators and administrators, it is important that we are aware of the current educational issues, topics, and strategies that are relevant to independent silent reading.
Through the use of survey research, this study discovered how first, second, and third grade teachers are implementing Sustained Silent Reading within their classrooms, and what they perceive the benefits and weaknesses of this independent silent reading program to be.
