Educator Helps Kids with Bikes and Books
Ertl convinced his principal to install a bike in a classroom and allow students to read a book while riding. The experiment proved so successful that Ertl filled an entire classroom with books and bikes for the “Read and Ride” program.
Reading test scores and proficiency were up — and the more time students spent in the Read and Ride room, the better they did on state reading tests. Read and Ride programs now exist (at least informally) in 30 states across the country, and educators all over are getting behind the trend. (Upworthy)
