“Kids need reading stamina” Developing a reading culture Lena Chervova School 8 Yartsevo,Smolenskaya region
It’s not the secret that students are becoming more and more dependent on the computer. Most of them do not have the desire to read.
Why read? Why books?
"Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body." Richard Steele
The ability to read is one of the strongest predictors of future success. Although reading can be taught in a classroom, it must be practised.
When students voluntarily read, they practise and enforce what is taught in the classroom. Michael Jordan can teach you to how to throw the perfect foul line shot, but if you don't ever practise the skill, his instruction is worthless.
It was found that “Being more enthusiastic about reading and a frequent reader was more of an advantage, on its own, than having well-educated parents in good jobs”
“Finding ways to engage students in reading may be one of the most effective ways to leverage social change."
Creativity and imagination Cultural heritage Language development Emotional development Increased self-esteem Sustained concentration Reading for pleasure =
“There is a strong association between the amount of reading for pleasure children reported and their reading achievement.”
…doesn’t always have to be from books Reading….
Websites Magazines and comics Newspapers E-books TXT messages …are all forms of reading!
“Books rule! You don’t have pictures to tell you how to imagine something, you can do it yourself! Books can do what no machines can, and probably never will. For example, time travel and they can take you to other dimensions! They are somewhere to go when you just want to escape the real world!”
"You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them." Ray Bradbury
“A significant number of boys would rather chew off their own right leg than confess to enjoying reading and writing.” Alan Gibbons
What does this mean? Impact on all subjects and exam courses Problems with concentration and attention span Lack of engagement with culture Stalling of reading & literacy development
“The research evidence suggests that encouraging reading for pleasure could be a way of contributing towards raising educational standards and combating social exclusion.”
“Sustained reading to my mind is essential for developing a world they would want to live in. The reading does not need to be fiction but I do believe that kids need reading stamina. Just like you have to stick at anything and practice etc surely you need to do the same with reading.” Ingrid Hopson
So what could we do?
We need time for reading…
Suggestions for Parents Positive attitude to books Role models with reading Join the library and go regularly Books & Reading material around the home
“Parents must remember its not their job to teach kids to read, it is to encourage them to love books.” Michael Rosen 2012
Becoming a reader requires reading outside of school, in the home. Children need to be reading for pleasure.
“Children moving through primary school and into secondary school without acquiring the habit of reading, may not develop the necessary reading stamina that is an essential part of being a capable reader (and writer).”
Of 18,000 children questioned, one third did not own a single book. Ten years ago this was 1 in 10
