If they are allowed to choose, they will be limited to what they currently like (Varlas). When a teacher selects a novel, they usually keep in mind the reading and comprehension level of their class, while an individual student could choose any book they wished to read. Some educators believe that students can only learn to evaluate, compare, and think critically about literature if they have freedom in their book choice (Gilmore). However, they could potentially choose books below their reading level and therefore fail to challenge themselves through literature.…
