Independent Sustained Reading
The English Language Arts Reading Standard 10 requires that by the end of specific grades, students read texts, within their grade level complexity band, proficiently and independently for sustained periods of time. Independent Sustained Reading (ISR) provides students with the opportunities needed to meet these expectation and become skilled readers. ISR focuses on growing students as readers, increasing their reading abilities through a combination of purposeful instructional strategies, and holding students accountable for their reading (Sandan, 2014).
