To read is not an easy verb to conjugate. To read is to put what is said in relation to the environment. To read is to distinguish between concepts. To read is to stablish connections. To read is to build bridges. Teaching how to read is an ongoing task which can’t be reduced to the amount of classes taken at school. A person learns how to read before and after knowing how to decode letters. The projects presented in this book have been carried out in kindergarten, primary, secondary and university classrooms. They provided with tools to assess and know our reality causing the inner world development. They are an invitation to reflect on the important role that Classroom Reading can play in the building of a community of critical readers.
