Reading Stamina (Online Course)
With experienced literacy consultant and author, Angela Ehmer
Reading stamina is the ability to read for an extended period of time without requiring adult supervision to maintain attention. Reading stamina builds the reader’s capacity to focus attention on the text without trying to concentrate, or feeling they are making a significant effort. The ability to re-engage with the text following an interruption or distraction and to get lost in the ideas without thinking about time should result.
