"Learning to read/reading to learn" a myth

..and a dangerous one:

For teachers who believe that teaching reading falls solely within the primary teacher's domain, reading after 3rd grade becomes an application or assignment, not an opportunity for teaching and learning. To further students' reading level, educators must give explicit instruction about how text is structured and effective and how students can ask questions and use strategies to make text more meaningful.
