Silent reading

Take out your books and read, she said
Story books only! Put away your textbooks!
You! Keep quiet!
Sit up! Show me that you are ready for silent reading!
The two boys at the back, don’t think I don’t know that you are talking!
Put your heads down and read!
This is the time for you to read!
The reason why you have to read, is because
We want to inculcate a love of reading in our students!

The bell rings. A student takes over.

School, sedia! School, our pledge- we the citizens…


How are the students going to enjoy reading if teachers nag continuously over the speakers while they try to read?
